Event Description

Co-curated by AGGV Chief Curator, Steven McNeil, AGGV Curator of Asian Art, Dr. Heng Wu, and AGGV Assistant Curator, Mel Granley.

Spring 2024, the AGGV will open two galleries on an ongoing basis to showcase selected strengths of our extraordinary permanent collections. One gallery will focus on our world-renowned Asian art collections and another will be devoted to works by Indigenous and Canadian artists, from the nineteenth century to the present.

There will be a common approach to interpreting the collections within these galleries: to look at key historical works through a contemporary lens. Our interpretive approach is intentionally broad, because our collections themselves are broad in scope: spanning the continent of Asia (with emphasis on the art of China and Japan); and the lands that make up present day Canada (with a strong emphasis on the art of Coastal British Columbia).

Exhibition runs until April 27, 2029.
