CELEBRATE FAMILY DAY AT THE GALLERY
MON FEB 17 12 PM
IN THE GALLERY
For families with kids looking for things to do on Family Day, the Vancouver Art Gallery is pleased to announce a special edition of Family Programs on Monday, February 17, 2020, a day brimming with interactive activities designed for the whole family.
Free for kids twelve and under, when accompanied by an adult, and free for Gallery members or with admission, Family Day at the Vancouver Art Gallery is inspired by Transits and Returns, on view until February 23, 2020. The exhibition explores the dynamic between place and movement in the work of twenty-one Indigenous artists from around the Pacific, tracing themes of movement, territory, kinship and representation.
Kinship can be described as a family connection or a sense of belonging to places and communities. From creating stamps that represent favourite food from home, working with air dry clay to sculpt dishware inspired by home cooked meals, to a VJ/DJ workshop to tell stories through video and music, discover and explore kinship at the Gallery.
FAMILY DAY SCHEDULE
3rd Floor, 12-4 PM
Explore, chat and play in the exhibition spaces with our team of Art Agents. Then experiment with the materials, processes and ideas that you see in the artworks on display in The Making Place.
THE MAKING PLACE
Annex Workshop, 12-4 PM
Inspired by the installation Kai as Koha (2019) by BC Collective and Louisa Afoa, what foods connect us to our loved ones?
