Meryl McMaster, Ivan Capote, Hulleah J. Tsinhnahjinnie
Vancouver Biennale is proud to launch its first billboard project under the theme of re-IMAGE-n, in partnership with Pattison Outdoor. The first three exhibitions can be seen on billboards throughout Vancouver until December 2020, with works by Meryl McMaster (Plains Cree), Ivan Capote (Cuba), and Hulleah J. Tsinhnahjinnie (Seminole/Muscogee/Dine’). Exact locations may change and will be updated regularly.
As encapsulated by the theme of the 2018-2020 Biennale, re-IMAGE-n Public Space, images carry power within the public realm where they shape our collective imagination, primarily as vehicles for advertising and consumption. In the Biennale exhibition, each artist reconsiders how we use, share, and tell stories within and about public space – as sites of empowerment, sovereignty, and Reconciliation.
The first three artists in the series are:
Meryl McMaster (Plains Cree)
Hulleah J. Tsinhnahjinnie (Seminole/Muscogee/Dine’)
Ivan Capote (Cuba)
