Don’t miss your chance to experience #Murakami’s work in real life before the exhibition closes May 6. We’ll be open late for the final week! 🐙🐙#VAGxMURAKAMI #CityMW #MuseumWeek
This week we’re celebrating #MuseumWeek, and today’s topic is #WomenMW. Watch our Instagram Story👆🏼to discover #5WomenArtists from the #VanArtCollection, selected by Assistant Curator Mandy Ginson. Visit the Gallery on April 28 to experience our upcoming exhibition “Emily Carr in Dialogue with Mattie Gunterman,” which unites the works of two women artists practicing in #BritishColumbia in the early twentieth century, on view through September 3. … American-born photographer #MattieGunterman (1872–1945) settled in the BC community of Thomson’s Landing (later Beaton) in 1898 after a 600 mile trek from Seattle, Washington. Like #EmilyCarr, Gunterman’s body of work reflects her deep engagement with the wilderness around her, which she documented through the lens of her medium format glass plate camera. Family, friends, trappers, prospectors, miners and Gunterman herself are among the subjects featured in her photographs, providing a fascinating look into the day-to-day of #pioneerlife. Visit the exhibition, opening April 28, to learn more about Gunterman’s life and work! … Image: Mattie Gunterman, “Anne and Rose Williams ‘punish’ Mattie Gunterman on the dining room heater at the Nettie-L,” 1902–03, silver gelatin print, printed by Henri Robideau, c. 1980–83, Collection of Henri Robideau
Protest has long been an important part of British Columbia’s fabric. This #EarthDay, we reflect on that legacy with Robert Keziere’s 1971 series of photographs of #Greenpeace’s first voyage to protest United States nuclear testing on Amchitka. See a selection of Keziere’s photos now on view at the Gallery in #BOMBHEAD! Join us on Tues Apr 24 at 7 pm for a tour of the exhibition with guest curator John O’Brian as he connects the post-war nuclear age and the contemporary moment. Free for members or with Gallery admission! ...

As part of #VAGThinkTank2018 and using @takashipom’s signature aesthetic of mixing high and low art forms and cultural references, students from Britannia, Carson Graham, Jules Verne and King George secondary schools worked with artist-in-residence @cindymochizuki to create a collaborative, large-scale room of their own #Arhats, or messengers from the future. Each messenger speaks to us from a fantastical space that we cannot see in the present. ... Visit the Gallery’s Annex Workshop this weekend on April 21 & 22 to discover these #futuremessengers for yourself in the current presentation of student works! #VAGxMURAKAMI #ArtMakesUs
