Object(s)
From the Archives

Walter C. Koerner Library
1958 Main Mall

This exhibition features a selection of artifacts from the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery Archives. The artifacts are presented in their protective archival enclosures, obscuring their most obvious levels of significance and making them into receptacles, inviting viewers to provide their own meanings and points of reference. This exhibition is a collaboration of the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery and the Walter C. Koerner Library at the University of British Columbia, and is made possible by the generous support of the Audain Foundation. Art in the Library offers new perspectives on contemporary art by presenting art that challenges our perceptions. This exhibition complements the questions posed by the objects that are included in Lalakenis/All Directions: A Journey of Truth and Unity at the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery from January 16-April 17, 2016.
