Vancouver Biennale Artist: Karen Lofgren (Canada & United States)


VNB & Vancouver Biennale present Karen Lofgren (Canada & United States) at the Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden


POST/PAST Exhibition Project

For its 3rd edition, the Vancouver Biennale has invited Virginie Lamarche and Bastien Desfriches Doria of VNB Photo to create a new photographic portfolio in documentation of all guest artists, curators and residency coordinators involved with the 2014-2016 Vancouver Biennale programs.

The project is to be photographed using VNB Photo’s modern adaptation of the Calotype process (special coated paper) on a 1920s 8×10 camera. Virginie and Bastien will produce around 90 historical portraits to be edited down to 30 to 35 final pieces for the ‘Post Past’ Biennale exhibition in late summer 2015.

The Vancouver Biennale is a non-profit charitable organization that celebrates art in public space. Each exhibition transforms the urban landscape into an Open Air Museum, creating globally inspired cultural experiences where people live, work, play, and transit. The objective is to use great art as a catalyst to transformative learning and social engagement. For more information, visit
