Brazil reveals contemporary side at pavilion
Thursday August 14th, 2014
Open Borders/Crossroads Vancouver, the theme of the 2014 Vancouver Biennale, invites any number of trite interpretations. Happily, living ideas about the nature of place, along with a strong feeling for materials, reveal themselvers through the mixed-mnedia installations and large-scale sculptures on view in the biennale’s International Pavilion. The exhibtion, spotlighting eight contemporary Brazilian artists, is mounted in the stripped-down and repurposed Pipefitters Building in Shipyard Square, east of Lonsdale Quay in North Vancouver.
