Public Open House at the Art Gallery of Victoria: Heart of the House

Curated by Steven McNeil, Curator of Historical & Canadian Art

Please join us for the opening reception for Heart of the House: Art & the West Coast Modern Home, on January 28 from 10am-5pm! Free admission, all day.

This exhibition highlights a selection of art and objects associated with West Coast modernism and the domestic interior from the AGGV’s permanent collection. It considers these works of art as integral to the concept of modern living that developed in mid century British Columbia, whether part of a fully integrated interior, or simply objects made and enjoyed by artists and collectors active in the mid 20th century.

Exhibition runs from January 28 - May 14, 2023.
