Third in a series of exhibits, Landfall and Departure: Prologue elaborates on Nanaimo’s history in the development and distribution of natural resources. Black Diamond Dust (2014) explored the impact of the coal industry on local communities and the global implications of the coal-powered industrial revolution. Silva (2015/2016), a two-part exhibit, titled O Horizon and Booming Grounds, respectively, followed the cycles of planting, processing and shipping inherent to local logging practices.

Landfall and Departure: Prologue (2017/2018), which coincides with the Nanaimo Art Gallery’s 40th anniversary and the year’s theme (“What does it mean to live on an island?”) brings together the work of 17 artists in an inclusive examination of the Nanaimo harbour. Located one block from the gallery, this is a working harbour with an internationally significant ocean network and, as such, is a local hub of exchange and a particularly rich source for imaginative musings.

Included will be sculpture, photography, textiles, drawings, paintings and video by contemporary artists, such as the 2016 Sobey-nominated Hajra Waheed, as well as artists represented in the gallery’s permanent collection, including E.J. Hughes and Jack Shadbolt. These will be featured alongside historical images from the Nanaimo Museum and audio recordings from the Nanaimo Archives..
