The exhibition is primarily comprised of the artist’s recent paintings, with a focus on works that were produced as props for artworks such as The Gifted Amateur, Pipe Cleaner Artist, My Late Early Styles and Lobbing Potatoes at a Gong.

    At this seminal moment in our institution’s history, the series brings together practitioners from across a range of practices and fields of inquiry to ask how we imagine the art, media and design university of the 21st century. Through various platforms, the series explores the relationship between the proposed campus and the land on which it will be built, the communities that surround it, and the historical and urban context of the site, and its promise to become a central element in a new creative and cultural district in the City of Vancouver.
