The Patricia Hotel opens at the Vancouver Biennale

In what is expected to become one of North America’s most talked-about art events of the year, globally renowned Melbourne artist Patricia Piccinini’s Curious Imaginings immersive sculpture experience will exhibit this September as part of the 2018-2020 Vancouver Biennale.

For the first time in the Biennale’s fifteen years of creating transformative experiences through public art, and in keeping with the 2018 – 2020 theme of re-IMAGE-n, the exhibition will take over an interior space in the historic Patricia Hotel.

The hyperrealist “world of oddly captivating, somewhat grotesque, human-animal hybrid creatures” will be the artist’s first exhibition in a non-museum setting, transforming a wing of the 105-year-old Patricia Hotel.
