Andrew Dadson
October 13 – December 31 2017
B.C. Binning and Alvin Balkind Galleries


The Contemporary Art Gallery will present the most comprehensive solo exhibition in a public gallery to date of work by Vancouver-based artist Andrew Dadson.


Dadson has consistently engaged with the notion of boundaries in relation to space and time in his work, primarily through investigations with materiality, process and abstraction. Comprising new, ambitious large-scale paintings, film and installation, the gallery rooms are given over to Dadson, whereby the exhibition presents a major statement by this young artist of propositions core to his practice. Although receiving great commercial attention and critical acclaim, Dadson has rarely shown in public institutions.


Through different mediums – painting, film, and photography – Dadson explores the possibility to cross the perceptual boundaries of space, both physical and natural, and is thus reflected in his work in an attempt to subvert our perception and usual ways of looking at things. In the works on display repeated, reiterated engagement with a core of ideas, suggest performative actions to form a visual kaleidoscope.
