Dwellings: From Seabeds to Cityscapes

October 25, 2014 to March 29, 2015

Where we live—and how we inhabit that space—shapes our experiences, our culture, and even who we are.

In this exhibition, we invite you to explore the many ways in which young people from across BC have reflected on their immediate surroundings and examined the concept of dwelling—in both human and natural worlds.

Investigate how creatures in different habitats interact with the spaces they inhabit, envision the human body as a dwelling space, imagine habitations for people in the future, and delve into many other creative contemplations on where we dwell.
