Discussion between artists Stan Douglas and Tim Lee, with writer Michael Turner as interlocutor.

Saturday, March 23, 3PM

Please join us at the Satellite Gallery for an after-noon with the Vancouver heavy-hitters Stan Douglas and Tim Lee, as they discuss different approaches to working with historical photographs, films and audio-visual materials. Both artists often work with material culture from the past, investing it with new meanings. They will provide insights into their research processes and ideas about media histories. Michael Turner will act as an interlocutor in the discussion; drawing on his extensive knowledge of the cultural life of this city.

This discussion will take place against the backdrop of the NEWS! exhibition, based on the press photography collection of The Vancouver Sun and The Province newspapers.

The Satellite Gallery is located in downtown Vancouver at 560 Seymour Street, 2nd floor (604.681.8425).
