In this film from the documentary series Art in the Twenty-First Century, artists Liz Magor, Stan Douglas, Brian Jungen and Jeff Wall consider objects, images and places and how they are represented. Their works are influenced by the city’s cultural communities, history, urban development and geography. Jeff Wall magnifies scenes captured in the city and reveals highly evocative dynamics in his huge, transparent photographic panels. By recreating historical moments, staging photos of vernacular scenes and creating intricate sculptures that trick the eye, Vancouver’s artists reveal how familiar images and objects are not always what they seem.
