About

Join us for a free exhibition tour of Oh Nightingale: Parviz Tanavoli in Farsi. A resident of West Vancouver for over three decades, Tanavoli is among Canada’s most significant contemporary artists. This exhibition will feature work that spans his six-decade career, focusing on his wearable art and small sculptures, prints and paintings of birds, cages and locks. The artist has returned repeatedly to these forms, allowing him to explore the themes of freedom, nothingness, poetry and history, while playing with his viewer’s awareness of traditional function and meaning. He explores dualisms that manifest themselves as both significant and trivial, a poet contrasting the everyday with the remarkable.
