Presentation House Gallery, Vancouver, is pleased to present the first comprehensive survey exhibition of work by New York based artist Anne Collier.

Over the past decade Anne Collier has forged a rigorous body of works that engage in a unique dialogue with contemporary photography. Collier produces tight, sparely formalized compositions often using a technique of re-photography. Her interest in mass market and pop culture imagery from the 1970s is expressed in carefully staged found photographs, and she has used diverse sources ranging from advertisements and posters, to art magazines and 70s vinyl LP covers. Her biting, dryly humorous compositions–some subtly self-reflexive–frame recurrent tensions of power and gender.

A full colour publication will be released in conjunction with the exhibition, available in March 2008. It will be the first to document Collier’s practice, and will include texts by NY based curator Bob Nickas and German critic Jan Verwoert, with an introduction by exhibition curator Reid Shier.

Hours: Wednesday to Sunday, 12 to 5pm and Thursdays open till 8pm
