Everything Is Anything...

I had the chance to see Douglas Coupland’s exhibiton “Everything Is Anything Is Anywhere Is Everywhere” at the Vancouver Art Gallery. I was amazed by every little detail of this incredible exhibition. If I had to choose a favourite, it would be impossible, so many of the works truly spoke to me. I particularly like art that involves the public and transitions into something new, and I thought “Gumhead” was a fantastic way of doing so. “Love Will Tear Us Apart” also was a highlight, that I find the lyrics of the Joy Division song to be spectacular. Also, the city of identical lego homes simply left me speechless! Coupland has done an incredible job of documenting our culture in the 21st century and objectively defining what it means to be a Canadian. Overall, it was an excellent show and I was so grateful that I could see it before summer’s end.
