The Body Politick: The Art and Architecture of Bruno Freschi

On June 29th Il Museo at Il Centro opens an exhibition on the artistic work of Vancouver architect Bruno Freschi, chief architect of Expo 86, and designer of the geodesic dome at the Telus World of Science; A defining monument in Vancouver’s built landscape. The exhibition links the artistic and architectural, composing a portrait of Freschi as he is indicted into the Italian Cultural Centre Hall of Fame this month. By connecting the conceptual ideas and figures that permeated through Freschi’s art and architecture, the exhibition creates a dialogue of retrospection about the role of Expo 86 on Vancouver’s development and urban design, and explores the artistic life of one of the architects who shaped Vancouver as we know it today.
