Holding Ground: Intergenerational Legacies of Art and Resilience 

By Nikki Sanchez 

Before a global pandemic sent the world into wave after wave of lockdowns, there was a different wave of change rolling across Canada — a unified solidarity that was shutting down business as usual. It was a wave of solidarity with the Wetsu’wet’en communities of Unist’ot’en and Gidimt’en, who were under military occupation in their own territory as they stood in opposition of the Coastal Gas Pipeline. When Wet’suwet’en matriarchs called for the country to stand in solidarity with them, their call was heard from Vancouver to Winnipeg, Tyendinaga to Tkaranto. 

Serendipitous technologies: a human-human-machine collaboration

Sometimes the projects that we do at the AGGV do not always ‘fit’ within the standard white-cubed gallery spaces you will find in our building on Moss Street. Sometimes our curatorial projects take place in remote communities, deep in the basement archives, in collaboration with other arts institutions, or in this case, within a kind of algorithmic museum!

Introducing the Spencer Showroom

By Sarah Kapp, Retail Assistant

We are excited to announce that the our Art Rental & Sales program has expanded! In addition to the Massey Sales Gallery, we have dedicated a second space to show local fine art in the new Spencer Showroom. The Spencer Mansion, built in 1889, serves as a beautiful contrast to the contemporary works now on display.
