Cabin Fever Catalogue Launch
Tuesday, June 12, 2018
6:30 PM, Gallery Rotunda
Free for Members or with Gallery Admission. Admission is by donation on Tuesday evenings from 5-9 pm.
Join us for a discussion with Stephanie Rebick, Associate Curator and Rachel Topham, Photographer at the Vancouver Art Gallery, as well as Derek Barnett of Information Office, to celebrate the launch of the exhibition catalogue accompanying our summer exhibition «Cabin Fever,» on view from June 9 to September 30. The conversation will focus on how exhibitions produce publications that extend the concept and scholarship of visual art and printed matter, and will foreground novel ways of approaching collaboration and collective thinking.
Heavily illustrated, the catalogue is composed of a selection of notable literature, excerpted texts and iconic images that chronicle the long history of writing and visual documentation about the cabin. Highlights of the «Cabin Fever» catalogue include the work and writings of Edward Abbey, Margaret Atwood, James Benning, W.E.B. DuBois, Walker Evans, Karl Ove Knausgaard, Dorothea Lange, Michael Pollan, Rudolph Schindler, Julius Shulman and Henry David Throreau, among others.
