Why Won’t You Be Art?

 

Gallery Hours

Tu–F: 10 am–4:30 pm; Sa&Su: 12–5 pm; M: closed

Roger Corman’s dark comedy A Bucket of Blood (1959) follows a beatnik who struggles in vain to become an artist. In one scene, he claws at a clay sculpture, yelling, “Be a nose! Be a nose!” This exhibition features fifty recent photo-collage based works by Vancouver artist David Ostrem, who incorporates art history, literature, and pop culture into incisive statements and questions about art, human perception, emotion, and meaning.
