“AND…” marks the 150th Anniversary of Confederation of Canada, a solidifying moment in the history of this country. It is the conjunction of experience and a tale to which there is always another side. This exhibition serves to acknowledge familiar stories, and to welcome unfamiliar perspectives on a past more prosperous for others than it was for many. Featuring work by artists from across BC, this exhibition aspires to examine the accomplishments and the failures of the last 150 years and take stock of the present so that we might honour the foundations on which confederation was built by forging a stronger tomorrow.
