The exhibition, textual vishyuns: image and text in the work of bill bissett, shows bill’s early assemblages, shadow boxes, paintings, drawings, new and multi-media works from the Vancouver Art Gallery and private collections. Spanning his full vocation as an artist the exhibition will also show bill’s early blewointment publications and first editions from the bissett papers and archives at SFU; it will also try and do more: to create a conversation on modern and contemporary art (“widen the area of consciousness”).
The show will open with a talk and reading by bill bissett at the Western Front in Vancouver on April 18 – this Friday!
