    The Marble in the Basement

    April 20, 2024 - June 30, 2024

    What gets stored in a shoebox? Deposited into an archive? Shoved into a corner? Catalogued as important? Fever pitched towards a garbage can? Centered on a pile of marble scraps that possibly once belonged to iconic Canadian artist and experimental filmmaker Joyce Wieland, local artist Hazel Meyer’s The Marble in the Basement untangles issues of power, memory, and inheritance by …

    Unit Bruises: Theodore Wan & Paul Wong, 1975-1979

    April 20, 2024 - June 30, 2024

    Curated by Michael Dang

    Unit Bruises brings together the works of two Chinese-Canadian conceptual artists active during the 1970s: Theodore Saskatche Wan (b. 1953; d. 1987) and Paul Wong (b. 1954).

    Collection Close-up: Cynthia J. Smith’s Anthology of a Facelift

    April 22, 2024 - June 30, 2024

This project pointedly yet …

    March 25, 2024 - June 24, 2024

    Photography, whether still or animated, is Richmond-based artist Ya-Wei Lin’s preferred medium for narrating the world, including daily activities, life experiences, events, and moments as she sees them. Since 2010, her ongoing photographic practice has focused on exploring the meaning of visibility in the context of urban culture. These images depict the fleeting and subtle moments of the seemingly unchanging
