Women's Work: New Acquisitions

Time: 12:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Location: Burnaby Art Gallery Map it
6344 Deer Lake Avenue
Burnaby, BC

The Women's Work: New Acquisitions exhibition focuses on the Burnaby Art Gallery’s direction, since 2013, to significantly enhance its collection of works created by women artists. Six years ago, it was discovered that within the permanent collection of more than 5000 works of art, only 22% of works were created by women artists. Although a statistic such as this is common amongst collecting institutions, it was nevertheless identified as troubling. Through targeted collections practices, the gallery has worked steadily to increase its holdings, so that the collection in 2019 now comprises 25% of works created by women.
