Our Exhibits

The Vancouver Art Gallery presents exhibitions of work by artists ranging from historic masters to leading-edge contemporaries. These include major thematic exhibitions, presentations of solo artists and smaller, more focused showcases. In a typical year, 2 to 3 exhibitions are borrowed from other institutions and 10 to 12 exhibitions are developed in-house, drawing on our permanent collection and loans of works from around the world. In addition, the Gallery tours a few of its exhibitions each year.

Private Collection, West Vancouver

In this focused exhibition, Vancouver-based artist Christos Dikeakos considers the economic and cultural values involved in transactions of Northwest Coast art. This series of photographs produced over the last six years portrays collectors, entrepreneurs and artists captured in acts of assessment, exchange or contemplation of these evocative objects. Additional images by Dikeakos speak to the transformation of land use and the spiritual dimensions of nature, both of which inform Indigenous cultural beliefs.

NEXT: Christos Dikeakos is the seventeenth installment in NEXT: A Series of Artist Projects from the Pacific Rim. Organized by the Vancouver Art Gallery and curated by Daina Augaitis, Chief Curator/ Associate Director.
