The Great Vancouver Paradox concentrates on two issues Vancouver is tackling in disparate ways: environmental sustainability and gentrification. Vancouver is thriving in the former but it is also one of the most expensive cities to live in, and the gentrification rates are skyrocketing, displacing lower-income and homeless people.
The exhibition explores the dichotomy of these two extremes, specifically highlighting the processes of how Vancouver decides what issues to prioritize, what groups and individuals directly benefit from said decisions, the resources provided for each, and the aftermath on the entire city. Viewers are asked to contemplate the status of health and justice in Vancouver.
