Vanessa Brown: That Other Hunger
This exhibition by Vancouver-based artist Vanessa Brown features a series of video works, textiles, sculptures, and sound. Delving into research around the concept of the hole, the artist explored imagery as diverse as geographical craters, caves, black holes, and the body’s orifices. Through the portal of her exhibition, visitors are invited on a journey into an unexpected world.

Art Activity: TBA
