Vancouver Convention Centre, Vancouver
May 05 – May 08, 2022
Western Canada’s largest art fair returns to the Vancouver Convention Centre. Art Vancouver’s vision is to unite nations through the power of art by bringing artists and galleries from across Canada and around the world to showcase fresh, contemporary work in the heart of the city‘s downtown waterfront.
Returning to its annual schedule after two years, Art Vancouver welcomes 100+ exhibitors, making Vancouver a destination city for art lovers. Unique this year, the inclusion of art in the form of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) will add a new level of dynamism to the art fair.
Countries from across the globe are represented in this year’s exhibition, including Iran, Mexico, USA, Taiwan, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Argentina, and Cuba. Integrated with the international guests are Canadian artists from all provinces and territories. Artists and gallery representatives will be at the exhibition to discuss their artwork, and their influences and to sell their pieces. Attendees can engage with interactive activities such as live art competitions, speaker panels, and an art runway show on the opening night.
