From Ballet BC, we are delighted to welcome dancer Andrew Bartee to the Contemporary Art Gallery, who over successive visits will develop a series of individual performances in response to ideas and themes present within the exhibitions.

Andrew Bartee is currently artist-in-residence at Ballet BC. As part of his year-long residency, Bartee is examining gesture and movement with a particular interest in audience in consideration of permeability of the fourth wall. He will be framing his research and performances around a guided exploration of the different ways we converse with art and each other.
