In collaboration with the Contemporary Art Gallery.
Join us for a tour and discussion of the first Canadian solo presentation of work by Swedish artist Gunilla Klingberg, a series of inter-related projects on the gallery façade and off-site. Klingberg’s practice can be located at the point of intersection between common knowledge, folk beliefs and popular culture. At the gallery and the Yaletown-Roundhouse Station, two murals of seemingly quasi-oriental pattern are presented. Evoking cosmic mandalas, transforming the space, her work surrounds and visually seduces viewers, this interest in using patterns to manipulate our seeing, links with Op Art and the psychedelic movement of the late sixties, appropriate touchstones in the recent history of this part of the world.
