part of Vancouver's first triennial!
Kim Dorland will be part of Vancouver’s first triennial exhibition titled Ambivalant Pleasures.
Ambivalent Pleasures is the first iteration of this series and it features works by 40 artists produced within the last five years. The title of the exhibition refers to the complex nature of pleasure in the early 21st century as we become increasingly aware of the social, economic and environmental costs of our desires, habits and patterns of living. We can see artists in this exhibition preserving capacity for pleasure in a variety of ways. Pleasure is present in the processes of making and the sensory nature of materials. It is discovered in the wilds of the mind and in uninhibited exploration. It lies in political awakenings and socially responsive ways of working.
