Isabelle Hayeur Fire with Fire 2010

Vectorial Elevation is undoubtly the one artwork you can’t miss during these Olympic days in Vancouver. Really. You can see it from almost anywhere in town and it’s as grandiose as an event like the Games requires.
On the outskirts of downtown, though, you can find some almost hidden treasures. Isabelle Hayeur’s outdoor intervention Fire with Fire surprised me during a visit to the new and shiny Woodward’s building. While there, don’t miss Vancouverism at the building’s atrium. Turn your head up and check out the huge Stan Douglas‘ photographic panel (below). A few steps from the atrium is the brand new Audain Gallery. Take a break from the long lines for almost any event in town and have a great cultural adventure north of Robson Square.
