This spring, Richmond Art Gallery presents an intriguing combination of lens-based work within its galleries and across the cities of Richmond and Vancouver. At the Gallery, two solo exhibitions by artists Ho Tam and Karilynn Ming Ho engage the aesthetic fade of desire. In dialogue with these exhibitions but outside the physical gallery, RAG presents four public installations along the No.3 Road Canada Line stations and one at the lines terminus at Vancouver's Waterfront Station, in partnership with Richmond Public Art Program, Canada Line and Capture Photography Festival. In the context of No. 3 Road, a transit and commercial hub, artists Marisa Kriangwiwat Holmes, Ho Tam, Karilynn Ming Ho and David Semeniuk are each producing site-specific installations, on display through the spring. This is the first time art has been displayed at Canada Line stations in Richmond.
The two exhibitions and five public installations represent a cross-section of photo-based practice, responding to our changing economic and cultural landscape, the ubiquity of advertising, and the influence of digital technology within our daily lives. Together the projects address the lure of the photographic image and its ability to instill desire and longing in its audience.
Opening Reception is on Saturday, April 7, at 7:00 p.m., Admission is free and all are welcome.
