The Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery, at The University of British Columbia and the grunt gallery, Vancouver, invite you to a celebration of Ruins in Process: Vancouver Art in the Sixties. Launched online in June, this resource and digital archive incorporates hundreds of photographs, press clippings, audio recordings and film clips. Drawn from private collections and archives as well as public sources, Ruins in Process brings together the research of many artists, curators and writers in an exploration of the diverse artistic practices of Vancouver art in the 1960s and early 1970s. Since its online launch, the project has been enthusiastically embraced by libraries, directories, blogs and listings worldwide.
Please join us in celebrating the many artists, curators, writers, designers and researchers that have made www.vancouverartinthesixties.com such a success.
