Do you remember the Summer of 1984?

1984 Poster for ART TALKS

The Contemporary Art Gallery is celebrating its 40th Anniversary, and as part of commemorating the occasion we’ve been reflecting on our past, searching through the archives and discovering some random mementos.

We found the above poster in the ‘best of the ’80’s file’, did  you or do you know someone who might have attended any of the advertised talks? If so, we would love to hear your recollections of what must have been some memorable Summer of ’84 Vancouver nights.

Know anything about this photo?

The Contemporary Art Gallery is celebrating its 40th Anniversary, and as part of commemorating the occasion we’ve been reflecting on our past, searching through the archives and discovering some random mementos.

We found this photograph, but have no factual information about it. We assume it was taken in the CAG’s old office and is of Gallery staff and Vancouver artists, but we don’t know when it was taken or who is in the photo. We’ve posted it here to see if anyone can help. The puppet is obviously the key.
