  1. Tom Burrows, Untitled, (c. 1968), installed in the Maplewood Mudflats, c. 1969, 35 mm slide.


PAST: January 29 and February 27, 2015, 1-2 pm

Join leading UBC scholars, artists, curators and critics in a series of midday conversations. We invite two prominent, disciplinarily distinct voices into the Gallery to discuss productive intersections of their own work and the current exhibition, followed by a discussion that includes the audience. In this series, guests will address Tom Burrows, an exhibition of works by the Vancouver/Hornby Island artist from his early career to the present. The exhibition is a timely refocusing of attention on an artist who has made an immense contribution to the development of art in Vancouver, not only as an artist but as an educator and activist as well—in 1975 he received a United Nations commission to document squatters communities in Europe, Africa and Asia, a work that is now in the Belkin’s collection.

Everyone is welcome and admission is free.
