Vancouver Art Gallery Offsite Exhibition

VAG Exhibition

Artist Kota Ezawa’s Hand Vote from across the street.

I used to walk by the Vancouver Art Gallery Offisite outdoor exhibition space every day on my way to work. I had forgotten all about it until one day last week on an errand in that part of downtown Vancouver, I passed right by it. First opened in November 2009, the outdoor gallery showcases ground-breaking public art projects by local and international contemporary artists.

Currently on display is Hand Vote by Kota Ezawa. A visual representation of the democratic process, the large-scale wood and paint tableau captures a group of people raising their hands to vote in what appears to be a town hall or community meeting.
