From June 9 to September 30, 2018 the Vancouver Art Gallery’s Cabin Fever will explore the tradition of the cabin in Canada and the United States through three main themes (Shelter, Utopia, and Porn). Gallery guests will journey from traditional frontier depictions of the cabin to the idyllic contemporary depictions in digital media today: in Shelter explore the cabin as a practical and provisional solution, in Utopia examine the cabin as the ideal North American escape destination, and in Porn encounter the cabin as a popular culture mainstay.

The exhibit will include an installation by American filmmaker James Benning, in conjunction with Offsite: a Paper Log House by Shigeru Ban, an internationally renowned architect known for designing relief shelters.
