One of Canada’s most provocative artists and cultural thinkers questions what our future holds
Douglas Coupland is one of Canada’s most celebrated contemporary artists, writers and thinkers. Through diverse media ranging from Lego to found materials, painting to installation, he explores issues which affect us all: the 21st-century condition, Canadian cultural identity, the power of language and the pervasive presence of technology in modern life. With incisiveness and humour, Coupland’s work will inspire you to question contemporary issues and suggest new ways of seeing your world. Douglas Coupland: everywhere is anywhere is anything is everything is the first major survey of the work Coupland has created since 2000. The exhibition is a first-time partnership between the Royal Ontario Museum, ROM Contemporary Culture, and the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art (MOCCA), with works at both venues.
Douglas Coupland: everywhere is anywhere is anything is everything is organized and circulated by the Vancouver Art Gallery and curated by Daina Augaitis, Chief Curator/Associate Director. The exhibition is presented in Toronto by the Royal Ontario Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art and is being held concurrently at both institutions. This exhibition was made possible with the generous support of The Keg Steakhouse + Bar, and The Artworkers Retirement Society.
