Following a year of reflection and research in 2022 — CAG’s 50th year of public operations — CAG invited more than fifty artists, cultural workers, activists, and other civic leaders throughout 2023 to reflect on the broader social and cultural histories that have shaped both this city and the gallery’s work over the past five decades.

Encompassing responses in audio, video and text, the resulting responses are gathered at Mapping some of the key moments, movements, art, and actors that have impacted the history, development and future of Vancouver in ways large and small, this project considers how we arrived at the current moment, both as a gallery and as a city, asking what the past fifty years might have to tell us about the fifty years to come.


Timelines is made possible with support from the Canada Council for the Arts Digital Now program.
