Rennie Collection Speaker Series – Andrew Grassie


Our friends at the Rennie Collection have been collaborating with Emily Carr on a speaker series and I am so happy they’re cataloging them on Vimeo so that all of us who can’t attend can watch them at our leisure. Have a look at this most recent talk that Andrew Grassie did. He currently has a show at the Rennie Collection which you can attend for free by making a reservation for a tour HERE.

Andrew Grassie was born in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1966 and currently lives and works in London. His work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at Tate Britain; Talbot Rice Gallery, Edinburgh; and Sperone Westwater, New York. He is represented by Maureen Paley in London and Johnen Galerie in Berlin.

Rennie Collection has evolved over a number of years to focus on works related to identity, social injustice, appropriation, painting and photography. Bob Rennie has garnered an international reputation as a dedicated collector, amassing one of the largest collections of contemporary art in Canada. In 2009, renovations were completed on the oldest building in Vancouver’s Chinatown to display the collection to the public. Rennie Collection at Wing Sang holds two exhibitions a year with supporting catalogues and events.
