On April 27, as part of Gallery Hop Vancouver, a panel titled "Air | Land | Sea" explored these elements and other expanded notions of landscape in contemporary art.
The panel featured artists Charles Stankievech and Kara Uzelman and curator Cate Rimmer, and it was moderated by Canadian Art Foundation programs and outreach manager Christine Shaw.
This post features audio from the panel, as well as slides from the panellist presentations.
