Burnaby Art Gallery Presents I-Dent, Evelyn Roth & BC Binning
The Burnaby Art Gallery features three exciting exhibits, including “Bear Ice”, BC Binning and I-Dent.
I-Dent at the BAG
The I-Dent exhibition, featuring a mix of both established and emerging artists, looks at contemporary art that takes on problems and issues related to identity and uniforms. I-Dent uses the function of the group identity as a starting point looking at how modes of dress and the concept of uniformsshape identity and relationships.
I-Dent's artists include: Derek Dunlop, Toni Latour, William Eakin, jeremiah Birnbaum and Kristina Podesva.
Evelyn Roth at the Burnaby Art Gallery
From July 21st to Sept. 10th, check out “Bear Ice” – Evelyn Roth’s inflatable outdoor installation created specifically for the Burnaby Art Gallery (BAG).
Roth’s history with the BAG goes back to 1979, when she created a participatory spectacle at the gallery. Her indoor gallery installations, combined with eight outdoor events, showcased her crochet webs for children, recycled videotape installations and inflatables.
Now, 30 years later, Roth situates these events as the flashpoint from which her international career as an artist has emerged. As a result, her latest inflatable installation – “Bear Ice” – was created specifically for the Burnaby Art Gallery, and celebrates more than three decades of her accomplished career as an artist.
BC Binning at the Burnaby Art Gallery
From now until September 13th, the BAG proudly presents selections from the permanent collection of Bertrum Charles (BC) Binning.
BC Binning is known as the quintessential artist representative of British Columbia. With a body of work that spans nearly four decades, the majority of his artwork features drawings, paintings and sculptures that reflect a nautical theme and a sense of time and place – attributes which have propelled him to local and national success throughout the 1940s. His draftsmanship demonstrates profound skill and knowledge of his subjects and the mastery of drawing.
The Burnaby Art Gallery’s Binning exhibition represents a small collection of the gallery’s holdings, many of which were donated to the gallery in 2008 by the estate of Jessie Binning.
Invention and Revival: The Colour Drypoints of David Milne and John Hartman and BC Binning are part of Drawn, metro Vancouver's inaugural art and artist drawing festival. For more information, Drawn Festival.
