Capture Photography Festival is proudly presented by TD Bank Group. The following short essay was first published in the 2019 Capture Magazine.
This year at Capture, the lineup of Vancouver artists will inspire you to think about Vancouver’s history, representation, and identity and the ways in which these contemporary artists are expressing themselves through new mediums and perspectives in public space.
Capture is a reminder of the role that artists and curators play in transporting people from the present to a place where they can reflect on the undercurrents of what is happening in their community and engage with art on a daily commute or through a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
The exhibitions that resonate with TD are Deanna Bowen’s exhibition at the Contemporary Art Gallery, Tom Hsu’s installation at Waterfront Canada Line Station, Alana Paterson’s installation at Stadium–Chinatown SkyTrain Station, and Birthe Piontek’s installation at Broadway–City Hall Canada Line Station. These projects encourage dialogue about Vancouver and the unique intersection of time we find ourselves sharing.
