Vancouver Art Gallery's Exterior Inspired By Indigenous Art

Construction on the weave like skin of the Vancouver Art Gallery will begin in November and is based on inspiration and discussion with Indigenous artists. 

"The redesign process started when Anthony Kiendl , the new CEO and director of the Vancouver Art Gallery, organized his first official meeting in August 2020 with Musqueam weaver and artist Debra Sparrow and her brother, Chief Wayne Sparrow.

Debra Sparrow described Kiendl as someone who understands “that art is more than visual — it represents culture and history."
