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.

Ayumi Goto & Peter Morin: how do you carry the land? is an exhibition that presents the performance art and ongoing collaborations of Ayumi Goto and Peter Morin. Their work begins from thinking through their respective positions as a Japanese Canadian woman and Tahltan First Nations man both in terms of deep ancestral knowledges and the way in which their identities and experiences are inscribed by colonialism. Grounded in explorations related to the land, Goto and Morin ask how cultural knowledge and history inform our experience of place, and challenge us to seek new formations.

Organized by the Vancouver Art Gallery and curated by Tarah Hogue, Senior Curatorial Fellow, Indigenous Art
