The Canadian Art Foundation, in partnership with the Contemporary Art Society of Vancouver, is pleased to announce that the full 2012 Vancouver Hop program is now available online at canadianart.ca/vancouverhop.
This free day of art, talks and tours will take place at galleries throughout the city on April 28.
The day begins at Vancity Theatre with a free talk featuring Vancouver artist Douglas Coupland and Canadian Art Editor Richard Rhodes. The two will discuss the evolution of Coupland’s art practice and his recent national and international exhibitions.
In the afternoon, a series of free tours and talks will be led by art-world experts eager to introduce audiences to some of Vancouver’s best artists and ideas. Selections include an exciting public-art tour starting at 2:30 p.m. at the Vancouver Art Gallery Offsite space and a talk by renowned artist Judy Radul at Catriona Jeffries at 4:30 p.m.
In the evening, the Hop wraps up with a special reception celebrating the Spring issue of Canadian Art magazine at Equinox Project Space. The new issue features coverage of several Vancouver-connected artists, including Ken Lum, Rebecca Belmore, IAIN BAXTER&, Monique Mouton and Abbas Akhavan. This will also be the final opportunity to see the acclaimed Equinox exhibition “A Retrospective,” featuring the work of Fred Herzog.
