Façade Festival is back to light up the Georgia Street exterior of the Vancouver Art Gallery with stunning works from ten contemporary BC-based artists!

Presented by Burrard Arts Foundation, in partnership with the Vancouver Art Gallery and technical partnership from Go2 Productions, Façade Festival is a projection-mapping and outdoor architectural intervention that transforms the Georgia Street façade of the Vancouver Art Gallery with the work of emerging and established contemporary artists from British Columbia. These monumental projections respond to the urban environment with vibrant creativity and provide viewers with a unique experience of visual art within the public realm.

This year’s featured artists include Diyan Achjadi, Fiona Ackerman, Scott Billings, Annie Briard, Shawn Hunt, James Nizam, Luke Ramsey, Evann Siebens, Ben Skinner and Paul Wong. Two artists will present their newly-commissioned work nightly, culminating in an Encore and Grand Finale showcase of all artists’ work on Saturday, September 9 and Sunday, September 10, respectively. In addition, a special presentation by Go2 Productions will be featured during the Grand Finale evening on Sunday, September 10.

A presentation of art, creativity and technical innovation, Façade Festival explores the ubiquity of digital forms in modern life and contemplates the role that new technologies play in contemporary art while engaging the public in a grand intervention in the heart of downtown Vancouver.
