Griffin Art Projects is holding an exhibition about art and poetry in Vancouver, 1960 to present.
January 26, 2019 – April 27, 2019
Opening Reception, Friday, January 25, 7–9 pm
1174 Welch Street
North Vancouver, BC V7P 2R5
This exhibition explores common methods and musings of poets and artists in Vancouver since 1960 and gestures to the deep influence of the San Francisco Renaissance Poets on local writers. This project presents key moments from this entwined history of visual and textual poets through examples of publications alongside focused presentations of artist’s work. A conversation emerges through similar modes of cut-up reference and shared formal experimentation.
The exhibition features Marian Penner Bancroft, bill bissett, Robin Blaser, Judy Chartrand, Judith Copithorne, Pierre Coupey, Peter Culley, Christos Dikeakos, Stan Douglas, Beau Dick, Geoffrey Farmer, Fran Herndon, Carole Itter, Roy Kiyooka, Tiziana La Melia, Al Neil, Judy Radul, Rhoda Rosenfeld, Trudy Rubenfeld, Nancy Shaw with many more.
