From Our Editors

The vision for what eventually became the arts-centric Vancouver Biennale organization began in 1998 when Buschlen Mowatt Galleries opened their four-month-long outdoor Open Spaces exhibit. Determined to go beyond the walls of traditional art galleries, the event’s organizers brought their showcase to a mile-long stretch of beach in English Bay and the back of one giant sea turtle. The sculptures, crafted by luminaries hailing from France, England, Colombia, and the US, drew more than seven million viewers during its limited run, and set off the idea that would become the Biennale—a biannual celebration exposing locals to many forms of public art.

Since then, the celebration has expanded to include not only visual arts but performance art and new media. In recent years, events have also included the Vancouver Tour de Biennale, an area bike tour that gathers cyclists to cover varying distances around the Vancouver area as they admire public art displays along the road.
