Gu Xiong: Coquitlam Waterscapes

Exhibition runs December 1st to January 19th

Internationally celebrated mixed-media installation artist Gu Xiong examines the significance of rivers and their ability to stand as microcosms of our ever-changing, fluctuating world. He focuses on the inherent migration patterns found along BC’s Fraser River and China’s Yangzi River – revealing their deep linkages despite their separation by the vast Pacific Ocean. This show also addresses the significance of our own waterways, in particular, the Coquitlam River and Watershed in connection to our history and relationships with the Fraser River, and in turn, the Yangzi River.
Opening Reception: Saturday, December 1, 4 – 6pm
Artist Talk with Gu Xiong, Saturday, December 1, 3 – 4pm

The Art Gallery at Evergreen Cultural Centre acknowledges financial assistance from the Province of British Columbia.
