Introduction

Through its mandate the CAG is concerned essentially with the encouragement of a greater appreciation of contemporary art. We are actively involved in making opportunities for people who would not otherwise have the enjoyment and benefit of working with visual art. Our learning activity celebrates the importance of personal experience and we aim to create accessible environments that allow people of all ages to learn. Various interpretative prompts – curatorial texts, guides, participatory activity, artists’ writings, and filmed interviews – encourage imaginative audience engagement and talks, tours, off-site projects, workshops, residencies and seminars are structured to build ongoing dialogue, providing opportunities for diverse learning activity to develop.

The Contemporary Art Gallery acknowledges the ongoing support of the many volunteers and Board Directors who assist in the development and delivery of our learning programs.

Founding sponsor of our education, learning and outreach programs:
Connor, Clark & Lunn Investment Management Ltd.

A CAG video featuring Keg de Souza, Burrard Marina Field House artist-in-residence, she discusses her projects made during her residency earlier this year. Watch out for Keg’s return for a follow up project in July.

Keg de Souza
July 20 to August 3, 2015
Australian artist de Souza continues work towards a series of public events in 2016 exploring food culture as a metaphor for urban displacement. In April, de Souza’s handmade inflatable dome became a temporary space at the Burrard Marina Field House for a public picnic engaging Canadian colonial narratives via a consideration of national food traditions. Meeting with local chefs, food activists and residents de Souza prepared a truly Canadian feast as a source for an afternoon of unfolding dialogue that the artist mapped directly onto the inflatable’s flooring. A starting point for the discussion was the ephemerality of the event itself — the only remnant left behind an intertwining of disconnected dialogues, mapped together with dirty dishes, crumbs and more questions posed. After the meal was eaten the structure deflated, the temporary community dispersed. De Souza will be hosting a second event in July, continuing to use food as an avenue to discuss local spatial politics.
