Vikky Alexander: Extreme Beauty
Vancouver Art Gallery
Summer 2019 Newsletter – Issue 50
The exhibition is on view from July 6 to October 27, 2019
Curated by Daina Augaitis, Interim Director
Vikky Alexander: Extreme Beauty is the first retrospective of the work of this notable Canadian artist who has been exhibiting photographs, montages, sculptures, collages and installations for more than three decades. Comprising approximately 85 works in all media and occupying the majority of the Gallery’s second floor, Extreme Beauty examines the major themes that have occupied Alexander for more than three decades – including the appropriated image, the artificially of nature, and the seduction of space – as the artist unravels the mechanisms of display that shape meaning and desire in our culture.
