Stations: Some Recent Acquisitions

Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery, Vancouver, BC - To Apr 11

by Robin Laurence

The modules by which this show is organized direct us to some of the gallery’s prime areas of research, including early experiments in cross-disciplinary expression in the 1950s and ’60s. One module ri s on women concrete poets and Fluxus artists through recently acquired works by the American-born, Berlin-based artist Dorothy Iannone. Another “sets up a conversation between” experimental filmmaker and multimedia artist Sam Perry and choreographer and Intermedia co-founder Helen Goodwin. Other artists and poets represented range from Robert Duncan to Rebecca Belmore and from Liz Magor to Beau Dick. Be there or be square.
