The Contemporary Art Gallery (CAG) is pleased to announce its fall/winter exhibitions of international critically acclaimed artists from Canada, Germany, Sweden and Japan. With this forward program we seek to attract significant audiences through innovative and diverse projects with international scope and local resonance. For 2014-15 the CAG will present work by leading contemporary artists reflecting our mandate of showcasing the very best of international contemporary art. We aim to develop dynamic and committed relationships between art, artists and audiences, supporting and contributing to diverse communities. This fall, we begin with renowned German artist Jürgen Partenheimer, work displayed produced while in residence in Vancouver, and two new public commissions by Swedish artist Gunilla Klingberg which utilise Canadian retail logos. Japanese artist Shimabuku will round off 2014 with a major survey of his twenty year career. Into 2015 we present an important co-commission with international partners, a significant new installation by German artist Grace Schwindt, and a solo exhibition by Canadian artist Jeremy Shaw, debuting new and recent film work.
