More About this Item


Description

Angela Grossmann has devoted much of her career to examining themes of displacement and social margins through the use of collaged and transferred discarded materials. In recent work, Grossmann emphasizes coming-of-age themes, including Alpha Girls (2004), a forceful narrative series depicting the world of young teen girls, and Paper Dolls, which continued the themes of social status, fashion and identity. In 2006, she joined Douglas Coupland, Graham Gillmore, Attila Richard Lukacs and Derek Root to create a massive sculptural installation entitled Vancouver School. The artist is an instructor at her alma mater, the Emily Carr University of Art + Design.

12. CATALOGUE ENTRIES: The Vancouver Art Gallery catalogue entries are provided for guide purposes only. Information herein is drawn from reference material which we believe to be highly reliable.
