The next ‘Reading Art’ Book Club will take place at the Vancouver Art Gallery on Tuesday, February 13, 2018 from 6 – 7.30 p.m. The Gallery is open until 9 pm by donation on Tuesdays.
Our selection for February is An Artist of the Floating World (1986), a novel by Nobel Prize-winning British author Kazuo Ishiguro. This book explores the life of an ageing artist and the tensions between art, politics and family in Japanese society before and after World War II. It is paired with our upcoming exhibition Takashi Murakami: The Octopus Eats Its Own Leg (February 3 to May 6, 2018).
