We are pleased to present the first time solo exhibition of internationally acclaimed Vancouver-born artist Tobias Wong. Wong’s work defied categorization, as he engaged with a range of art processes from installations, performances, and furniture making to product and fashion design.
He was cheeky, playful, witty, and clever. He appropriated, manipulated, manufactured, mass-produced, and re-issued objects, pouring new meanings into them. Like many pioneers, his art both seduced and upset.
You'll want to see first hand why Wong is considered a forerunner of conceptual design.
