Stations: Some Recent Acquisitions explores some of the Belkin’s research areas through a selection of new works in the permanent collection. Director and curator Scott Watson walks through the exhibition and offers insight into some of the key works and themes, including the internationalism of concrete poetry and Fluxus artists, Vancouver’s art scene of the 1960s seen through the work of Sam Perry, Helen Goodwin and Audrey Capel Doray, a powerful grouping of works by Rebecca Belmore, Beau Dick and Liz Magor, and work by the San Francisco Renaissance artists of the 1950s and 60s from the Estates of Robin Blaser and David Farwell.
Stations draws on recent acquisitions to the permanent collection and is organized into interrelated modules that explore some of the Belkin’s research areas. While the physical gallery remains open to the public, COVID-19 has pushed us to rethink our exhibitions. With the increased turn to our website, we are including here a selection of films that are also being screened in the gallery space.[more]
Due to the uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, we are postponing the Image Bank exhibition until June 2021.
