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.

Mumbai-based artist Reena Saini Kallat recreates migration routes across the world through a symbolic web of human and cultural movement and exchange. The expansion of urban spaces all around the world has led to mass migration and new social conflicts within the global social structure, provoking issues related to identity, survival and spiritual needs. As a city characterized by diversity, Vancouver's urban and cultural landscapes are also in a state of constant transformation. Kallat's sculpture evokes temporal and spatial strategies for dealing with global situations on a local level.

Organized by the Vancouver Art Gallery and curated by Diana Freundl, Assistant Curator.

Offsite is funded by the City of Vancouver through the Public Art Program. The Gallery recognizes Ian Gillespie, President, Westbank; Ben Yeung, President, Peterson Investment Group; and the residents of Shangri–La for their support of this space.
