The Kelowna Art Gallery will open their latest installation, The Poetics of Space.

Organized and circulated by the Vancouver Art Gallery, curated by Daina Augaitis, chief curator Emerita and Emmy Lee Wall, assistant curator, Vancouver Art Gallery.

This exhibition is part of the Across the Province touring program, which is supported by the Killy Foundation.

The Poetics of Space presents a range of historical and contemporary works by 29 artists that together communicate some of the countless ways artists have contemplated space—from its optical perceptions, to its emotional impact and finally, its geographical or topographical limits.
