Pablo Picasso, Frank Gehry, T.S. Eliot, Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Jean-Luc Godard. All under one roof. You’ll find all these artists – and many more – at the Vancouver Art Gallery’s “MashUp: The Birth of Modern Culture” from now through June 12, 2016.
As the art gallery’s largest exhibit yet, “MashUp” presents an astounding 371 artworks by 156 celebrated artists from 1912 to present day. When you consider the scale and grandeur of this exhibit, it’s little wonder “MashUp” took 30 years in the making. Spread over four floors at the VAG, this renowned exhibit calls Vancouver home for the next several months – an impressive feat for both the gallery and the city, considering the exhibit’s level of complexity and sophistication.
Similar to the evolution of art represented in Vancouver’s “MashUp” over the past 100+ years, Canada’s top destinations have similarly evolved and innovated to become leaders in offering thoughtful, world-class experiences.
