Shinsuke Minegishi and Shifting Margins: Emily Carr and Irene Hoffar Reid

Shinsuke Minegishi

The Burnaby Art Gallery is pleased to announce its double showcase, Shinsuke Minegishi and Shifting Margins: Emily Carr and Irene Hoffar Reid.

Shinsuke Minegishi is an artist-printmaker who excels in the process of creating wood engravings and original bookworks that weave personal and collective narratives with subtle, unique, complimentary and imaginative imagery. His first solo art museum exhibition, held at the Burnaby Art Gallery, will focus on a selection of wood engravings and books created by the artist, including Innsmouth Look, Good and Evil in the Garden, Ars Anatomica and The Tale of Three Black Boxes. A full colour publication of works by Minegishi is being printed as part of this exhibition.

Shifting Margins: Emily Carr and Irene Hoffar Reid exhibits works by two B.C. artists and selected archival materials surrounding their life and work. Engaging a discussion around the marginalisation and mythification of certain artists, the exhibition considers aspects such as gender, geographic location, subject matter and time period in the creation of art historical narratives. Shifting Margins: Emily Carr and Irene Hoffar Reid is guest curated by Sofia Stalner, an MA candidate from UBC’s Critical and Curatorial Studies graduate program. This exhibition is made possible with support from the Killy Foundation and the Audain Endowment for Curatorial Studies through the Department of Art History, Visual Art and Theory in collaboration with the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery at the University of British Columbia and the Burnaby Art Gallery.
