This exhibition contains work by twenty-eight artists who explore beyond the realm of what is considered real. The zone of the fantastic contains both utopian and dystopian realms, and both are explored in this show. The works are grouped by sub-theme: The Unconscious, The Haunted, The Absurd, and The Disassembled. Some of the artists included have never been on exhibition in Kelowna before, for example, Francis Bacon (1909-1992), the Irish-born painter famed for his screaming papal heads. Another is the American photography-based artist Cindy Sherman, famous for work in which she dressed and posed as women in old master paintings, or from the Hollywood cinema. Read more…

Unreal is organized and circulated by the Vancouver Art Gallery with the generous support of the Killy Foundation. Curated by Daina Augaitis, Chief Curator/Associate Director, Vancouver Art Gallery.

David Rokeby: Very Nervous System


This show is an interactive sound piece that is triggered by the gallery visitor’s body movements. When people enter the interactive area of the gallery space (delineated by a spot-lit section on the floor) they will soon realize that sounds coming from two speakers in the room are caused by their own movements. Thus visitors experience the work each in their own way, and will create their own unique sound pieces.  Read more…

The exhibition has been curated by music composer and Carleton University professor Jesse Stewart. It is organized and circulated by the Carleton University Art Gallery, Ottawa.
