everywhere is anywhere is anything is everything
Douglas Coupland

everywhere is anywhere is anything is everything

Here in Vancouver

Douglas Coupland is a Canadian gem. At least that’s how I felt after experiencing his exhibition at the Vancouver Art Gallery, “everywhere is anywhere is anything is everything”. It’s hard to think that this is the first major survey of his works on display. As a visual artist, novelist and designer, Coupland’s work is both expansive and celebrated worldwide. Do yourself a favour and plan an evening out with friends to immerse yourself in his iconic work. Tuesday’s are entrance by donation at the Vancouver Art Gallery. GO!

Side note: I went to the third floor where the Gallery was displaying its recent acquisition to its permanent collection (they acquire around 200 works/yr). A series of drawings caught my attention and I lingered, just staring at its complexities, totally experiencing that “I should have thought of this!” moment. I looked at the artist and it happens to be Gary Lee Nova, my drawing instructor in my first year at the Emily Carr University! Coincidentally, the artwork on display at the VAG offsite is created by Babak Golkar, another instructor I had in my first year at Emily Carr University. To top off this Emily Carr resurgence, Douglas Coupland is also an alumni of the Emily Carr Institute.
