The Metamorphosis brings together contemporary art from the Vancouver Art Gallery’s permanent collection that addresses the notion of transformation—whether it be physical, spiritual or cultural. Some artists featured physically alter the appearance of their materials, while others repurpose everyday objects in evocative ways. Some create works that suggest a movement between different realms or states, seeking altered consciousness or spiritual transcendence. Others still engage the issue of cultural hybridity as a result of shifts between one milieu and another, often pointing to the difficulties of translation that result. Many of the works in The Metamorphosis have been acquired within the past five years, and several of them will be on view at the Vancouver Art Gallery for the first time.

Organized by the Vancouver Art Gallery and curated by Emmy Lee Wall, Assistant Curator, Bruce Grenville, Senior Curator, and Tarah Hogue, Senior Indigenous Fellow.
