Visually stunning, City on Edge: A Century of Vancouver Activism is a photo-based exhibition exploring how protest demonstrations have shaped Vancouver's identity. The exhibition is a unique opportunity to access rarely seen images capturing epic moments of Vancouver's protest history from the Vancouver Sun and The Province newspapers' photo collection. These photographs are exceptional historical records of intense and transformative moments in the lives of Vancouverites.
City on Edge builds on the book of the same name, published by Greystone Books, and authored by retired Vancouver Sun research librarian Kate Bird. The exhibition is co-curated by Kate Bird and MOV curator Viviane Gosselin and designed by Amir Ofek.
