Our Exhibits

The Vancouver Art Gallery presents exhibitions of work by artists ranging from historic masters to leading-edge contemporaries. These include major thematic exhibitions, presentations of solo artists and smaller, more focused showcases. In a typical year, 2 to 3 exhibitions are borrowed from other institutions and 10 to 12 exhibitions are developed in-house, drawing on our permanent collection and loans of works from around the world. In addition, the Gallery tours a few of its exhibitions each year.

Vancouver-based artist Andrew Dadson has consistently engaged with the notion of boundaries in relation to space and time in his painting, performance, photography and works on paper. His solo exhibition, which features works that have not previously been exhibited in Canada, explores abstraction in various media and includes new monumental paintings.

Dadson (b.1980) graduated from Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in 2003 and has since exhibited his work in Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland and the United States. He was the 2011 recipient of The Brink Award.



NEXT: Andrew Dadson is organized by the Vancouver Art Gallery and curated by Emmy Lee Wall, Assistant Curator. Andrew Dadson: Over the Sun is the sixteenth installment in NEXT: A Series of Artist Projects from the Pacific Rim, presented by TD Bank Group.
