On Thursday the 14th, the founder of the Vancouver Biennalé gave us a tour and in-depth history of the English Bay sculptures. The main photographer for the Biennalé was with us also and he informed everyone about each piece's background and step by step process leading up to its unveiling for the public. I personally hadn't researched anything about what we saw even though I of their existence beforehand; it was fabulous to be given the real depth of their importance and meaning to Vancouver and its public art movement. Can you believe it's already the end of Walking Home Yaletown's 3rd week?!?! I can't, Catherine Pulkinghorn, Laurie Dawson and Bali have been literally the most dedicated and loyal, hardworking women you could dream to lead, guide and educate us about their fields of specialty.
I found there was a lot I gained from the tour, it opened my perspectives about the technical philosophies of art and installation overall. Major kudos to the folks at the Vancouver Biennalé.
Here's some visual proofs of thursday:
