Vancouver Art Gallery Launches Online Series

Art is what has the power to connect us all right now; whether it’s a documentary about a Lisa Frank-styling tiger-exploiting man from Florida that captivates a generation for a hot minute, or performances that are translated to multiple languages for hundreds of years or mosaics preserved through millennia. These varied and reflective moments, put together by artists, are what make us feel, collectively, as people, across space and time.
