Requiem for the American Dream

  • What: Noam Chomsky exposes the  failures of a system that has spent the last 50 years adhering to the whims of corporations. They own everything you love, and in a lot of ways they own you, too. Heavy stuff, but important, even if you don’t live in America.

The Mad Alchemist

  • What: Late B.C. painter Peter Aspell was part of a group of Vancouver painters to rise to prominence following the war. Fascinated by abstraction, Aspell eschewed the techniques of his colleagues, focusing on figuration over landscapes. If you understand even a little bit of that, you’ll love this exhibit at the Richmond Art Gallery, exploring Aspell’s work.
