Vancouver Art Gallery, Vancouver, BC, Canada

Housing a permanent collection of more than 10,000 artworks, the Vancouver Art Gallery continues to build on the collection’s historical and contemporary strengths through the acquisition of work by local and international artists through donation and purchase. Currently, approximately 3% of the collection is on view. While housing one of the most important photographic collections in North America today, the Gallery had acquired a relatively small number of significant photographs prior to 2002, key among these works by John Vanderpant, Eikoh Hosoe, Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Minor White and Donigan Cumming. n our 80-year history, the Vancouver Art Gallery has expanded three times. Currently operating at and beyond capacity after nearly 30 years in the renovated former provincial courthouse building, the Gallery is now planning a new, purpose-built facility that will meet the community-s needs for the next 50 years and beyond.
