Edge of Landscape

jmarigomen-botan-07_1200

Cutty Contemporary Art Gallery is pleased to present its first group show, Edge of Landscape. The show offers an investigation into Vancouver’s relationship to landscape, as a space outside of the traditional Canadian landscape trope and sitting on the western edge of the continent. The works chosen address contemporary conceptions of landscape and marginality in multiple ways. The term “edge” is examined as a complex set of meeting points and contact zones of urban and natural environments and the anxiety produced in these unstable spaces.
