JUNE 14, 2014 12pm – 4pm Yaletown-Roundhouse Skytrain Station | At corner of Mainland Street & Davie Street FREE | No registration required
Marian Penner Bancroft’s newly commissioned installation Boulevard at the Roundhouse/Yaletown Skytrain Station involves a sequence of photographs of winter trees grouped together in a mirrored formation around two of the station’s glass walls. As high-contrast translucent prints adhered to the windows, they create a lattice effect, casting patterns and shadows in the station when the sun shines through.
Contemporary Art Gallery hosts this workshop that works directly with Penner Bancroft’s installation. Participants will develop their own collective drawing collage by taking tracings of Bancroft’s branches and adding them to an ever growing communal drawing on the wall of the station.
Participants of all ages and experience are welcome.
The Contemporary Art Gallery (CAG) is a non-profit public art gallery dedicated to the research, exhibition, education and documentation of contemporary visual art as it is practiced locally through to internationally. It aspires to generate significant audiences for its innovative and diverse programmes through free access and a profile that is international in scope.
The CAG is the longest standing independent public art gallery dedicated to presenting contemporary visual art in Vancouver. We deliver between ten and twenty exciting exhibitions and off-site projects each year, provide an extensive range of learning and public programs for adults, families and children, offer a series of residencies for Canadian and international artists directly contributing to the local scene, and publish insightful catalogues that create a lasting legacy of exhibited work. We do this while offering all of our programs free of charge through an admission by donation policy. We believe that access to, enjoyment of and engagement with contemporary art and the surrounding debates should be available and open to all.
