News release: VCC newest site for Vancouver Biennale
VCC hosts the unveiling of the Vancouver Biennale latest public art installation “let’s heal the divide" by Vancouver artist Toni Latour. The site-specific neon work, hung on the façade of the Vancouver Community College building at 250 West Pender Street, marks a physical division between the Downtown East Side and the commercial and financial districts that border it. The location highlights the glaring economic disparity between neighborhoods and addresses the socio-economic, political and cultural points of disconnect. In the spirit of hope, the piece calls for action, collective healing, connectivity, and inclusion.
