The Garden of Earthly Delights is the first exhibition of works by Montreal-based artist Juan Ortiz-Apuy on the west coast. Using video, light, sculpture, and living gardens, his works create a rhizomatic exploration of commodity fetishism, exploitation, and the tensions between the natural and artificial.

Two Spirit Rising, a mural project by Coast Salish artist Margaret August. It presents a series of images that includes depictions of Thunderbirds as symbols of strength, power, and protection. The project speaks to the two spirited people who are rising in today’s world to show their gifts, and to find their gifts.
