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.

Conceptual Design

The Conceptual Design of the new Vancouver Art Gallery

September 30, 2015 to January 24, 2016

The conceptual design was conceived by Herzog & de Meuron, the design architects for the new Vancouver Art Gallery. They are internationally renowned for their innovative and elegant buildings and their contribution to the design of contemporary museums. Their focused attention to materials, surface, the existing landscape, cultural history and environmental conditions has defined a practice that is astonishingly subtle and complex. For the Vancouver Art Gallery project, Herzog & de Meuron are collaborating with Vancouver-based Perkins + Will who were selected by the Gallery in 2014 to serve as the local Architect of Record.
