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.

In response to Emily Carr's travels to remote locations and the ceramic objects she produced for the tourist market, Vancouver-based artist Gareth Moore travelled through Europe, North America and Asia to investigate sites-some dating to prehistoric eras and others inhabited more recently-in which stone has a notable significance. During his travels, Moore produced stone carvings for exchange or sale to fellow travellers, as well as plein-air drawings incorporating found materials from the sites he visited.

In Dialogue with Carr: Gareth Moore features a new work by Moore that includes objects and materials gathered during his journeys, as well as a selection of Emily Carr's ceramics, presented in relation to the specific physical structure of the gallery space.

Organized by the Vancouver Art Gallery and curated by Grant Arnold, Audain Curator of British Columbia Art.
