2011 marks the CAG’s 40th year and we plan to reflect, celebrate and enhance the crucial role the CAG plays in presenting contemporary art to the city. The CAG is dedicated to the research, education and documentation of contemporary visual art as it is practiced and in presenting dynamic exhibitions and events, including work never before seen in Vancouver, while also challenging viewers in how they think about contemporary art. Be sure to come and celebrate the CAG’s 40th birthday at one of our exciting roster of upcoming events and exhibitions showcasing artists from Canada and around the world.
