On April 11, 2015, in front of an overflowing audience, Canadian Art editor Richard Rhodes hosted a panel discussion to kick off Gallery Hop Vancouver. As Rhodes mentioned in his introduction, nothing equals Vancouver when it comes to changing infrastructure. In a dark and moody room of the Contemporary Art Gallery, panellists discussed the bright and promising opportunities that their respective new infrastructures are creating for Vancouver.
A note on the audio: There were problems with the podium microphones, and the camera microphone was used to capture most of the sound. We apologize for any discomfort this may cause.
