Last few days to see Damian Moppet's Offsite Vancouver Art Gallery installation on West Georgia between Thurlow and Bute Street. Want to learn more about this installation? Visit the Vancouver Art Gallery's website for more info: http://www.vanartgallery.bc.ca/the_exhibitions/exhibit_damian_moppett.html

Building on the sense of theatricality inherent in these works, Moppett's project for Offsite represents the studio as a kind of stage set. Starting with the artwork Large Painting and Caryatid Maquette in Studio at Night, the artist transforms the painting into a three–dimensional space, taking shapes from the painting and reproducing them as large–scale cut–outs in metal. Powder–coated with bold colours, the shapes are propped up in the outdoor space as if from a pop–up book. Moppett's project returns a reproduction of the artist's studio into a sculptural artwork, one that viewers can experience at a larger–than–life size. - Courtesy of the Vancouver Art Gallery

Offsite is organized by the Vancouver Art Gallery and curated by Kathleen Ritter, associate curator. Offsite is funded by the City of Vancouver through the Public Art Program. The Gallery recognizes Ian Gillespie, President, Westbank; Ben Yeung, President, Peterson Investment Group; and the residents of Shangri–La for their support of this space.
