Exhibition Concept
BestB4 Collective brings their new project Telling Stories: a visual art exhibition to the Chinese Cultural Centre, opening November 7 (2 - 4 pm). Nine visual artists* collaborate with community members to transform the On-Tak Cheung Exhibition Hall in the Chinese Cultural Centre into a gallery meeting place where photography, painting, ceramics, fibre and video installations tell and evoke stories.
Storytelling is a timeless medium for teaching, entertaining, comforting and connecting. These stories require time to relate, absorb and reflect upon, as do personal tales and critical opinion, and in contemporary visual culture, stories are compressed into instantaneous imagery. Hence, Telling Stories events will invite dialogue about these essential contemporary questions between the artists, the Chinese Community and other cultural groups. 
Telling Stories is presented by the Chinese Cultural Centre and partially funded by the City of Vancouver.
