Drawn from the Vancouver Art Gallery’s permanent collection, The Street presents thematic views of the urban street as a source of inspiration for artists and as a primary site for the enactment of culture. As the central space in which private and public realms intersect, the street is an arena where individual gestures and chance encounters speak to the pleasures, the challenges, and the experiences of our everyday life.

This group exhibition will feature painting, photography, sculpture, and video ranging from the eighteenth century to the present. Visitors can look forward to seeing works by notable Canadian and international artists including William Hogarth, Roy Arden, Robert Capa, Allyson Clay, Robert Frank, Fred Herzog, Jeff Wall, Robert Linsley and Lawrence Paul Yuxweluptun, among many others.

The Street is organized and circulated by the Vancouver Art Gallery under the Across the Province program and is curated by Grant Arnold, Audain Curator of British Columbia Art.
