Uninvited: Canadian Women Artists in the Modern Moment [Vancouver Art Gallery]

On view at the Vancouver Art Gallery

Uninvited: Canadian Women Artists in the Modern Moment offers commentary on a generation of extraordinary women painters, photographers, sculptors, architects and filmmakers from a century ago — pioneers who opened new frontiers for women artists in Canada — as well as works made by their Indigenous female contemporaries working in traditional media, for a cross-country snapshot of female creativity in this dynamic modern moment.

The exhibition features more than 200 pieces of art, including 30 works on loan from the National Gallery of Canada.
