Curators’ Talk: Grant Arnold and Mandy Ginson
March 31 & April 3, 2020

Pre-register for the Curators' Talk at Zoom

March 30, 2020, Vancouver, BC – In response to temporary closure of the exhibition spaces due to the current global health pandemic, the Vancouver Art Gallery launches Art Connects, a new series of online gatherings that encourage dialogue and connection during this new age of physical distancing.

Starting Tuesday at 1:30 PM and Friday at 4:30 PM this March 31, the Vancouver Art Gallery will stream live conversations on the Gallery's Zoom channel, featuring guests from local and international arts communities. Art Connects is free for everyone to join and the weekly conversations will be interactive in nature. Upon registration, attendees can submit questions and chat directly with fellow attendees during the live stream.

Art has the power to connect individuals, communities and cultures. No matter its form, art encourages communication, broadens perspectives, enriches the mind and renews the spirit. During challenging times, art can uplift the community through enriching and culturally meaningful experiences.

Join us for a special preview of the exhibition, The Tin Man Was A Dreamer: Allegories, Poetics and Performances of Power, with curators Grant Arnold and Mandy Ginson. Together, the curators will walk us through the exhibition and speak to the importance of bringing together recent acquisitions from Gallery’s permanent collection to make exciting exhibitions that deal with contemporary issues of our time.
