Gallery Artist Robert Burley will be featured as part of the group exhibition Residue: The Persistence of the Real at the Vancouver Art Gallery from June 12 until September 27.

"Residue: The Persistence of the Real features recent work in photography, video and film by Canadian and American artists Robert Burley, Stan Douglas, Babak Golkar, Geoffrey James, Brian Jungen & Duane Linklater, Catherine Opie and Amie Siegel. Although these challenges to the truth value of the image, along with the proliferation of digital imaging technologies, may have changed the way we perceive "realist" imagery, interest in work that describes the world has persisted and even expanded in terms of artists' production and in terms of interest on the part of gallery-going audiences."
