Max Dean Exhibition at Vancouver Art Gallery

Gallery artist Max Dean has work on view at the Vancouver Art Gallery in the exhibition The Poetics of Space from January 31st to May 24th. The exhibition "features both historical and contemporary works that investigate the idea of space, whether they are conceptually, analytically or emotionally founded. This exhibition takes its title from Gaston Bachelard's 1958 book of the same name that presents a psychic interpretation of "home," and one's prototypical experiences of personal space; in the book Bachelard discusses the way our perceptions of shelter begin to delineate the very essence of how we think and imagine. Using this text as a starting point, the exhibition explores the symbolic meaning of spaces as tied to ideas of perception, memory, intimacy and experience." - Vancouver Art Gallery
