The WALL, located at the CBC Vancouver Broadcast Centre Plaza at 700 Hamilton Street, is a Vancouver Heritage Foundation public art initiative. Made possible by a unique partnership between Vancouver Heritage Foundation and CBC Radio-Canada, with support from JJ Bean Coffee Roasters, and is produced in partnership with the City of Vancouver Public Art Program, the WALL features a new artist every year.
FREE ARTIST TALK: FAITH MOOSANG
There will be a free artist talk with current WALL artist, Faith Moosang. Faith will discuss her artwork, “down.town.” including her process, research and impetus behind the final work which uses 164 individual film frames, video stills and digital photographs from the CBC Archives and Wikimedia Commons to respond to questions on demolitions and change in downtown Vancouver between 1954 and 2015. The artwork has been installed at The WALL since November of 2015.
Thursday, July 14
5:30pm – 6:30pm

We received a number of great proposals for the next WALL public art installation, and are pleased to announce the new artist! Emily Neufeld was born and raised in Alberta, but now lives and works in North Vancouver. She graduated from Emily Carr University of Art + Design with her BFA in 2013 and has been exhibiting across BC and Alberta since then. Her prairie roots run deep and her current work investigates how the layers of memory and traces of psychic history accumulate in particular domestic spaces.
Emily will be working with the CBC Archives to inform the new artwork which is scheduled for installation in August, 2016. Check back here for information about the public launch.
