THE MODERN EYE
Opening July 22, 2011, Art Gallery of Greater Victoria
For western cities without much history to draw on, there’s been a trend to celebrate more recent histories, in art, architecture, design, and culture. Opening July 22 at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, The Modern Eyespotlights cultural and quotidian touchstones between 1940 and 1980 — household goods, furniture and craft objects that embody a uniquely Canadian modernist aesthetic.
