Happy #PinkShirtDay! How do you #lifteachotherup 🚀 today and all year long at the office or at school? . Vienna-based artist #ErwinWurm uses humour as an important tool in his work, often to convey an underlying social critique of contemporary culture, particularly in response to capitalist influences and resulting societal pressures. . Stop by the #VancouverArtGalleryOffsite to add some fun and whimsy to your day with these sculptures in “Offsite: Erwin Wurm,” extended until March 22! .

Now on view, #lineagesandlandbases presents more than 80 artworks from the #VanArtCollection that challenge the modern Western assumption that #nature and #culture exist as two distinct realms, a concept which helped shape Canada’s national art and identity in the early 20th century. On the contrary, in Sḵwx̱wú7mesh sníchim (the Squamish language), there is no word for “nature.” Instead, within this #Indigenousworldview, people are intimately bound to non-human entities, whether plants, rocks, animals or places, locating subjectivity well beyond human beings and creating an ethical imperative to care for the natural world. . Visit us today to experience @brianjungen’s stunning installation #Cetology for the first time in Vancouver since 2010, alongside other awe-inspiring works from the Gallery’s permanent collection. .
