On Saturday, April 27, 2013, the Canadian Art Foundation, in partnership with the Contemporary Art Society of Vancouver, invites art lovers to join in our annual Vancouver Gallery Hop, a day of art, talks and tours happening at galleries throughout the city.
The day begins at 11 a.m. at VIFFʼS Vancity Theatre with a free talk featuring artists Charles Stankievech and Kara Uzelman and curator Cate Rimmer, moderated by Canadian Art Foundation program and outreach manager Christine Shaw. The discussion will explore their work with landscape and their alternative explorations of earth, air and sea.
In the afternoon from 1:15 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., a series of free tours and talks will be led by art-world experts at a selection of Vancouverʼs galleries and museums. Highlights include a talk by critic Aaron Peck about Gareth Moore’s work at Catriona Jeffries at 2:25 p.m., a discussion with “Full Frontal” curator Katie Schroeder at Satellite Gallery at 1:30 p.m., and a chat by curator Jordan Strom about Owen Kydd’s exhibition at Monte Clark Gallery at 3:25 p.m. Also on deck is a public art tour led by CASV president Rachel Lafo that starts at 3:15 p.m. at the corner of Pacific Boulevard and Nelson Street.
In the evening, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., the Hop wraps up with a special reception at the Vancouver Art Gallery celebrating the Spring issue of Canadian Art.
