City On Edge

Museum of Vancouver, Vancouver, BC - To Feb 18

by Robin Laurence

Subtitled A Century of Vancouver Activism, this timely exhibition focuses our attention on Vancouver’s “rich history of protest.” Featuring some 650 photographs of “demonstrations, occupations, riots, blockades, and strikes,” it also employs digital projections, short films, and a compelling soundtrack to further engage visitors. Subjects range from race riots to peace marches, and from anti-logging protests to demonstrations demanding redress for missing and murdered Aboriginal women.
