movie day: Brendan Lee Satish Tang

A household name in the Canadian ceramic scene, Brendan Tang is finishing up a residency at the Burrard Arts Foundation which surprisingly takes him a step away from the work he’s gained so much recognition for. It’s always exciting to watch established artists take risks and challenge themselves, and their audiences, creatively. Make sure to catch his latest exhibition, opening this thursday the 11th and running till March 10th. There’s a great write up on the Burrard Arts Foundation site about this new series and some background for those new to his work.


CBC Arts also recently caught up with the artist in his studio in Vancouver. Make sure not to miss this behind the scenes look at Tang’s Manga Ormolu series and how it lead him to his new cloud series meatspace at Burrard Arts Foundation. And check out more of Brendan’s work on his website.

Brendan Tang
Tang has exploded onto the contemporary Canadian art scene with his
ceramic work; hybrids of traditional Asian vessels and current pop
cultural sensibilities. Tang represented Western Canada as a
finalist for the prestigious Sobey Art Award and has been exhibited
extensively across the North America, including at the Vancouver Art
Gallery, The Mendel Gallery, the Seattle Art Museum, the Denver Art
Museum and early in 2013 his work will be included in an exhibition at
the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.
