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.

Moving Still: Performative Photography from India explores themes of migration, gender, religion and national identity through the lens of performative photography. The exhibition focuses on the photo-based practices of contemporary artists who are rooted in the diversity of cultures within the country, while at the same time engaging in a global dialogue.
