Giants, Dragons & Unicorns: The World of Mythic Creatures
The Giants, Dragons & Unicorns: The World of Mythic Creatures exhibit, will be held in the feature gallery from May 6 to September 16, 2023.
The exhibit is filled with unique cultural artifacts that highlight the surprising similarities and differences in the ways people around the world envision and depict mythic creatures, as well as our stories of identity and belonging.
The Weaving Cultural Identities Exhibit
The Weaving Cultural Identities exhibit is presented by Vancouver Biennale and will run from May 2 to October 1, 2023.
This contemporary textile art exhibit showcases the works of weavers and graphic artists from Coast Salish Indigenous communities such as Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh nations, as well as from Vancouver’s immigrant Muslim communities.
