Please join us Saturday, April 30th for a special behind the scenes tour of the Vancouver Art Gallery led by senior gallery curator Bruce Grenville. The tour will take CASV members through the Museum Services that support ongoing exhibitions at the VAG and give insight to how a new Vancouver Art Gallery will expand these services and exhibitions program.
Bruce Grenville is the Senior Curator at the Vancouver Art Gallery. His area of focus consists of contemporary art and visual culture. He has organized many thematic group exhibitions including, Grand Hotel: Redesigning Modern Life, an international survey of hotel architecture and design from its emergence in the early 1800s to the present; KRAZY!
