Christos Dikeakos is a senior Vancouver photographer whose work since the late 1960s has addressed the urban environment, specifically Vancouver’s, and our understanding of history. The works on display are in the University Art Collection at the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery and are from Sites and Place Names: Vancouver, an ongoing series he produced between 1991 and 1994 that evolved during research into various neighbourhoods of Vancouver. This presentation is a collaboration between the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery and the Walter C. Koerner Library at the University of British Columbia, and is made possible with the generous support of the Audain Foundation. Art in the Library offers new perspectives on contemporary art by presenting art that questions our current perceptions about the world around us.
