Offsite Exhibitions

Offsite exhibitions are organized by the Gallery’s Preparator/Exhibition Coordinator and generally draw from works from the City of Burnaby Permanent Art Collection. Offsite exhibitions also present opportunities for emerging and local artists to present their work to a wide audience.

Two Burnaby library locations, Bob Prittie Metrotown Library and McGill Library, host these exhibitions.

Focusing on artworks from the City of Burnaby Permanent Art Collection that explore movement and dance, with an emphasis on prints donated by Fei and Milton Wong, this show builds on recent Burnaby Art Gallery programs that have introduced dance and movement into exhibition spaces. The artworks in Moving Through Silence address the challenges of depicting motion through the two-dimensional surface, revealing a range of artistic approaches, and expressing a spectrum of human emotions. Curated by Cameron McLellan, BAG Registrar.
