January 13 - April 8, 2012

Not sure what is going on; maybe if one tries hard enough, some logic can be drawn from it but I don't feel like solving puzzles at the moment. Lious Camnitzer's work, books and concrete, reminded me of earthquakes.

rather uninspiring. Not even disturbing, although 13 variations is thought provoking and visually appealing

The works are very unique and also provides curiosity. The "Letters" seem to portray an idea of each city's atomsphere.Interesting artwork.

THe artist seems to be sick, and this comes from the corrupted materialistic western developed culture. DO you call this a beauty? The western civilization will collaps soon by moral chanllanges...

I would be interested to know more about installation practices. /Fenster/, for instance, is merged into the wall itself. How is the accomplished? How much of the original piece of preserved? How much of it needs to be reconstructed in each gallery? Where does gallery end and exhibit begin? Also, how does your staff manage to work with that droning and animalistic background noise?

enjoyed these works, a nice breather from works in other galleries. So much to interpret. Good use of the gallery space

at the end of the exhibit I walked away scratching my head in wonder. I have no I dea what he was trying to convey.

'Atlantis / Jericho Study' 1 through 5 was interesting. Jiri Kolar's 'Untitled' (1963) was fantastic. Interesting exhibition, but I have absolutely no idea what was going on!

Saturday Cold and foggy and yes we bicycled all the way from WV and the brilliant "letters" cheered us up. So bold and strong It is so interesting to see how the printed word is interpreted by so many artists.

Intriguing.... Nice method of blending visual and literary elements.

Rhiannon at 4:09 pm Thursday, January 26, 2012

I thought that this was the most accessible exhibit I have seen here. It made me want to learn more about these artists and their other work.

I have absolutely NO IDEA what this man was saying or what he was all about! Sorry, I found the exhibition disappointing and pretty pointless.

fascinating look at the perspectives of color use, light, nudity and self-perception.

Michael Morris was quite influencial in Vancouver during the sixties and seventies.
