Stan Douglas – Stained Glass

Posted in About, art, exhibitions by tyler057 on September 22, 2009

Saturday night Seung-Young’s show opened well and many lovely people were by to check it out. Yesterday, we flew some paper airplanes at Waterfront Park and carried on to take Seung-Young and Jaehyun (his marvelous other half) for a day trip up the sea-to-sky highway. Today, along with Sung and Kiban (my better half and son) they enjoyed a day in town. Sung took them to go check out what might be on at the Vancouver Art Gallery, but when Seung-Young heard the ticket counter staff explain that all they really had on was a show of the Group of Seven and Stained Glass, it is understandable that he wasn’t so interested. Sadly, it was only on the ride home tonight that we discovered, it was just a lost-in-translation moment and not that he just had no interest in Stan Douglas… There is no stained glass show on at the VAG. And as far as I understand they don’t have any planned for the foreseeable future…

    Stained glass and the Group would be a nice turn for the VAG!

    an anonymous poster submitted a comment saying that this episode is really too bad as Stan Douglas’s video Klatsassin is actually a really important work. I certainly agree.
