Catalogue Launch
Tom Burrows

Location: Bau-Xi Gallery, 3045 Granville Street, Vancouver

Join us at the Bau-Xi Gallery as we celebrate the launch of Tom Burrows. The retrospective on one of the most influential artists in the West Coast art scene over the past forty years, Tom Burrows, and the exhibition that preceded the book, presents work by the artist from his early career to the present. The book is a timely refocusing of attention on an artist who has made an immense contribution to the development of art in Vancouver, not only as an artist but as an educator and activist as well. Burrows’s work, which demonstrates an interest in process and new materials, has encompassed a number of disciplines including sculpture, early performance art, video, painting and iconic hand-built houses on the Maplewood Mudflats and Hornby Island. Currently most well known for his innovative monochromatic cast polymer resin “paintings/sculptures” produced during the last forty-five years, the book examines the full breadth of his career with works from the Belkin’s permanent collection as the basis with other works from the artist, collectors and public institutions.

Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies International Research Roundtable
Curating Critical Pedagogies: A Curatorial Conversation with Clark House Initiative

All are welcome and admission is free.

As part of the PWIAS International Research Roundtable project, please join us at Pollyanna圖書館Library for a discussion with Zasha Colah and Prabhakar Kamble of Clark House Initiative, Bombay. Clark House Initiative is a curatorial collaborative and a union of artists concerned with ideas of freedom, that was established in 2010 by Zasha Colah and Sumesh Sharma. Strategies of equality have informed their work, while experiments in rereading histories, and concerns of representation and visibility are ways to imagine alternative economies and freedom. Clark House Initiative intends to actively recall political and artistic figures into contemporaneity and to question the recent rise of fascism in India based on exaggerated rumors of economic prosperity and nationalist pride. Membership in the union arises from basic tenets of humanism: Friendship, Anti-Racism, Sexual Freedom, Anti-Homophobia, Anti-Islamophobia, Feminism, Secularism and understanding the project of Modernism as an economic and political reality outside the occident. This event is hosted by 221A and co-presented by the Belkin Art Gallery. We gratefully acknowledge the generous support of the Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies for the award to support this Academic Program research project.
