Public Open House & Panel Talk: Heart of the House: Art & the West Coast Modern HomeJan 28 | 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Please join us at the Gallery for the Public Open House for Heart of the House: Art & the West Coast Modern Home from 10am-5pm. Free admission, all day.
This exhibition highlights a selection of art and objects associated with West Coast modernism and the domestic interior from the mid twentieth-century. The works included come from the AGGV’s permanent collection as well as selected private collections. The exhibition considers these works of art as integral to the concept of modern living that developed in mid-century British Columbia, whether part of a fully integrated interior or simply objects made and enjoyed by artists and collectors active in the mid-20th century.
Join us for a panel talk with historians and experts on West Coast mid-century design and art from 10:30am-11:30am, followed by a Q&A until noon. Visitors can look forward to hearing from the following speakers:
Steven McNeil, Curator of Historical and Canadian Art, AGGV
Allan Collier, collector/curator specialized in modernist craft and design in Canada
Martin Segger, architectural historian and former Director of Art Galleries & Collections at the University of Victoria
Adele Weder, Architectural Writer and Curator
