Pictures From Here


Vancouver Art Gallery

May 19 to September 4, 2017


Curated by Grant Arnold, the summer 2017 exhibition on the second floor of the Vancouver Art Gallery, Pictures From Here, is comprised primarily of work from the Gallery’s collection, and will include photographs and video work made over the past twenty-five years that builds upon a conceptual framework while picturing the built environment and the vast “natural” landscape that makes up much of British Columbia. Artists in the exhibition are Roy Arden, Karin Bubas, Christos Dikeakos, Stan Douglas, Greg Girard, Rodney Graham, Mike Grill, Arni Haraldsson, Fred Herzog, Barrie Jones, Evan Lee, N.E. Thing Co., Marian Penner Bancroft, Henri Robideau, Sandra Semchuk and James Nicholas, Althea Thauberger, Jeff Wall, Ian Wallace, Paul Wong, Cornelia Wyngaarden and Andrea Fatona.


Henri Robideau's contribution to the show is the recently completed version of his Four Directions of the Okanagan (2000) along with six new colour narrative works (2013 to 2017). Please consult the Vancouver Art Gallery website for hours and associated events.
