We are very excited to announce that Jeneen Frei Njootli has been named one of 40 artists whose work will be featured in Vancouver Special, a new triennial exhibition inaugurated by the Vancouver Art Gallery. The first edition of the triennial, entitled Ambivalent Pleasures, will open on December 3rd, 2016 at the Vancouver Art Gallery.
Vancouver Special: Ambivalent Pleasures is co-curated by Daina Augaitis, Vancouver Art Gallery’s Chief Curator/Associate Director, and guest curator Jesse McKee, the Head of Strategy at 221A Artist-Run Centre. After conducting an extensive number of studio and gallery visits, the curators have selected works by 40 artists and developed an exhibition that encompasses a range of reimagined explanations of surrealism, abstraction, and conceptual practices.
Visit Fazakas Gallery to view a current exhibition of works by Jeneen Frei Njootli and Carlos Colín. Their show, Emerge, will be on display until Thursday, November 24th.
