Burnaby Art Gallery Offers Virtual Tour of Local Artist’s Exhibition

Burnaby’s Brad McMurray turns his lens on familiar local neighbourhoods, revealing their strange artistry in his latest show at the Burnaby Art Gallery (BAG).

Brad McMurray: Pedestrian explores urban and industrial environments, often punctuated with unexpected decoration and splashes of colour, bringing a fresh perspective to areas which may or may not be familiar to Burnaby audiences.

The Burnaby Art Gallery has produced a video which takes viewers on a tour through the exhibition, punctuated with commentary from BAG Curator Jennifer Cane and McMurray himself.

“My body of work reflects a long-term interest and fascination with the everyday artifacts of a culture. I look for seemingly insignificant details of places within the urban landscape — the unremarkable, the banal and the forgotten,” said McMurray. “The viewer is confronted with an image that they likely walk by every day and never really look at.” 

This exhibition includes large-format photographs taken in Metro Vancouver, the B.C. Interior, Los Angeles and Las Vegas.

Based out of Burnaby and the Okanagan Valley, McMurray draws upon a long lineage of photographers working in the “New Topographics” tradition. His work has been exhibited at the Vernon Public Art Gallery as well as the Penticton Art Gallery, and his works are also in the City of Burnaby’s Permanent Art Collection. The Penticton Art Gallery generously loaned 11 works by McMurray from their permanent collection for this exhibition.
