    What to Expect
    Visit: Vancouver Art Gallery, 750 Hornby St, Vancouver, British Columbia V6Z 2H7 Canada

    Immerse yourself in the historical and contemporary art of British Columbia and international centers, celebrating the accomplishments of Indigenous artists and the art of the Asia Pacific region at this world-class gallery. Whether you’re a new or returning visitor, the artwork will be great food for thought as you peruse the exhibitions, read about the backgrounds and historical contexts of the works and a get closer look at specific works that resonate with you.

    Be inspired by the works of British Columbia’s best classic and contemporary artists, as a large percentage of the collection represents local art. Beyond the photography, the paintings, and more, you’ll be in awe of the 20th-century building, the former provincial courthouse, which is a work of art in and of itself. Complete your experience with a visit to the Gallery Store for unique gifts or take a break for lunch on the Gallery Café’s rooftop patio, one of the city’s best kept secrets.

    2018 exhibition highlights include: Takashi Murakami: The Octopus Eats Its Own Leg (February 3 to May 6); Emptiness: Emily Carr and Lui Shou Kwan (on view until April 8); Cabin Fever (June 9 to September 30); and David Milne (June 9 to September 16).

    Those hoping to enjoy some specifically Canadian art will be disappointed. This is not a permanent collection. Should you venture inside, first check exactly what the current exhibitions actually are. If they are as varied as they were on this visit, there should certainly be...More

    Hello Robert, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at the Gallery. We are glad you were able to visit all 4 floors of exhibitions and that you found the exhibitions to be well-laid out. Due to the size of our beautiful,...More

    A very average offering of mostly modern art. Four good Emily Carrs and a fine Riopelle. Unbelievably incompetent admission policy on Thursday evenings “pay what you want”. Seniors and babies lined up for an hour just to be paraded before three harried clerks to have...More

    The Vancouver Art Gallery is a beautiful building in the classic style, but what you think you are going to see is not what you get. The gallery shop window displays much Monet and other such merchandise but that type of art is not what...More

    This was a disappointment. Not all the floors were open and the shop was closed for inventory. I did not really like the art that they featured. It was a waste of good money.

    One floor was closed off when we visited while an exhibit was being developed. It's mostly modern art and some of the descriptions and interpretations are a little pretentious 😄 for me it was a little overpriced but fans of more modern art I'm sure...More
