The Willful Plot

Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery, Vancouver, BC - To Apr 16

by Robin Laurence

From earthly paradise to nature-culture interface, the garden is one of the most symbolically charged of human creations. In this group exhibition, curated by Melanie O’Brian, the garden is considered as a site of wilfulness and resistance. It is also, she writes, “a heterotopia for alternative cultivation and potential transformation.” The show’s artists are Derya Akay and Vivienne Bessette, Derek Jarman, Gabi Dao, Char- mian Johnson, Glenn Lewis, Mike MacDonald, Rehab Nazzal and Dana Qaddah.
