Vancouver has been one of the most important cities in the world for contemporary photographic production for over a decade. Given the long history that the UBC Gallery and the UBC Fine Arts Department has had with the artists involved, the contemporary photo collection has, in recent years, become the focus of much attention.
This exhibition includes a selection of photographs and photo-based work recently added to the collection and takes up the issues of identity and landscape as history.
Included are works by Roy Arden, Alan Belcher, Tom Burrows, Christos Dikeakos, Stan Douglas, Karin Geiger, Geoffrey James, Larry Johnson, Laiwan, Ken Lum, Al McWilliams, Kevin Madill, Liz Magor, Morris/Trasov Archive, N.E.Thing Co., Manuel Piña, and Ian Wallace.
No catalogue produced. Excerpts from an essay by Scott Watson, “Coming Out in Kevin Madill’s Queer Landscape,” were printed in the Belkin Gallery Newsletter, Spring/Summer 1998.
