Women’s Work: New Acquisitions
Burnaby Art Gallery, Burnaby, BC - Jun 21 – Aug 25
Sometimes the playing fi eld needs more than levelling; sometimes it needs to be plowed up and completely reseeded. The BAG’s summer show features new acquisitions of work created by women artists as part of a targeted collections practice to redress the previous gender inequity in the gallery’s permanent collection. Among the many historic and contemporary artists represented here are Diyan Achjadi, Shuvinai Ashoona, Kate Craig, Carole Itter, Agnes Martin, Marianna Schmidt and Tania Willard.
