Join us for an artist talk with current exhibiting artist Sylvan Hamburger in conjunction with his exhibition Exit Strategies, in the gallery August 28 to October 2.

Exit Strategies features the relief printed impressions of ten doors salvaged from Vancouver demolition sites throughout the pandemic. Amidst the social isolation and rapid cycling of real estate, the prints fill the gallery as an assortment of soft, flat exits.

Sylvan Hamburger is visual artist working in printmaking, installation, and public art. He often uses salvaged architecture to consider the historic and social implications of changing built environments, examining the material transformation of neighbourhoods as a process of displacement and placemaking. A graduate of Mount Allison University, Sylvan completed the Printmaking Studio Practicum program at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity in 2018-2019. He lives in East Vancouver on the unceded homelands of the Xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Selílwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
