About This Resource

This research guide is on the topic of contemporary art in the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh territories that are unceded and colonially known as Vancouver. The aim of this guide is to help you navigate the library's resources, find suggested external resouces, and explore perspectives in art throughout Vancouver.

This guide points to only a few of the inexhaustible facets of art in Vancouver through time, space and experience. Coincidentally, there may be areas of your research that are not adequately represented- particularly arts movements doing important work outside of dominant or recognized frameworks of organization. This guide is a work in progress, which welcomes suggestions! Contact Ana Diab at       604-844-3840        520 East 1st Avenue, Vancouver, BC
