Patricia Piccinini: Curious Imaginings at the Vancouver Biennale

Renowned Buxton Contemporary Collection artist Patricia Piccinini has unveiled a monumental, immersive sculpture experience in Canada as part of the 2018-20 Vancouver Biennale: re-IMAGE-n. 

Piccinini’s exhibition Curious Imaginings takes over an interior wing of the 105-year-old Patricia Hotel, Strathcona, transforming the space into a “world of oddly captivating, somewhat grotesque, human-animal hybrid creatures.”

Curious Imaginings continues until December 15, 2018.
