The WALL, located at the CBC Vancouver Broadcast Centre Plaza at 700 Hamilton Street, is a Vancouver Heritage Foundation public art initiative. Made possible by a unique partnership between Vancouver Heritage Foundation and CBC Radio-Canada, with support from JJ Bean Coffee Roasters, and is produced in partnership with the City of Vancouver Public Art Program, the WALL features a new artist every year.
Free Artist Talk: Emily Neufeld
There will be a free artist talk with the 2016-17 WALL artist, Emily Neufeld. Emily will discuss her artwork, “Picture Window” which focuses on the layers of memory and traces of psychic history that accumulate in particular domestic spaces and investigates that lived history through the dialogue between the materials she uses and the spaces she creates. The artwork was installed on October 20th.

We received a number of great proposals for the next WALL public art installation, and are pleased to announce the new artist! Emily Neufeld was born and raised in Alberta, but now lives and works in North Vancouver. She graduated from Emily Carr University of Art + Design with her BFA in 2013 and has been exhibiting across BC and Alberta since then. Her prairie roots run deep and her current work investigates how the layers of memory and traces of psychic history accumulate in particular domestic spaces.
Emily will be working with the CBC Archives to inform the new artwork which is scheduled for installation in August, 2016. Check back here for information about the public launch.
