PORTRAITS IN TIME

June 29 to October 14, 2013
Organized by the Vancouver Art Gallery
Curated by Ian Thom, Senior Curator-Historical

Film, video and digital media have allowed artists to explore ideas of portraiture in ways not possible in still
photography or painting. A subject can be observed in time, sometimes over an extended period and other times
only for a short episode. The works included in Portraits in Time, drawn from the permanent collection of the
Vancouver Art Gallery, presented people in a variety of narrative contexts to provide an amplified version of
portraiture. It allowed visitors to explore how individuals relate to their environment (sometimes self-created),
the larger context of a life story, as well as perceptions of self and technology.

ARTISTS: Roy Arden, Rodney Graham, Tom Sherman, Fiona Tan, Althea Thauberger
