A prodigious collector of contemporary art, the late Phil Lind (1943-2023) was drawn to artworks that illuminated social and political histories. An enthusiastic supporter of what has since come to be known as the Vancouver school of conceptual photography, this exhibition features works by noted Vancouver-born artists Stan Douglas, Rodney Graham, Ron Terada and Jeff Wall. Complimenting these lens-based works – some intimate, some large-scale light boxes, some multimedia - are paintings, photographs and sculptures by Thomas Demand, William Eggleston, Anthony Gormley, Philip Guston, William Kentridge, Thomas Ruff, Laurie Simons, Wolfgang Tillmans and Ai Wei Wei. This exhibition is curated by AGO Associate Curator of Modern Art Adam Welch.
