Centre A Announces New ED/Curator

Vancouver’s Centre A—Canada’s only public gallery dedicated to contemporary Asian visual art practices—has announced the appointment of a new executive director/curator, Tyler Russell.

Most recently, Russell has been known as the founder of North Vancouver’s Café for Contemporary Art, where he curated several exhibitions. According to a Centre A release, Russell also has nearly a decade of experience organizing both community-based and biennale-scale art exhibitions in Korea and Japan.

Noting Vancouver’s unique geo-cultural place in the Asia Pacific, Russell said in the release that under his watch at Centre A “we will see less of an emphasis on conversations about how Asia, a space external to other spaces, is to be defined, and more of a curious inquiry into who, in this era of transpacific exchange, we might become.”

The previous Centre A executive director/curator, Haema Sivanesan, finished up in December and is moving on to an undisclosed position outside of British Columbia.
