Dan Halter forms part of the Rennie Museum’s permanent collection and current exhibition titled Winter 2015: Collected Works – a major group exhibition featuring 41 prominent and emerging artists. The exhibition, which runs until 20 May 2016, brings together a variety of practices and media and aims to reveal the chaos of the world by addressing enduringly pertinent issues, from migratory displacement to an in-depth examination of identity and history.
Rennie Collection is a leading collection of contemporary art that focuses on issues related to identity, social commentary and injustice, appropriation, and the nature of painting and photography. While based in Vancouver, the collection is usually spread across the globe, on loan to institutions such as MoCA Los Angeles, the MET, Centre Pompidou and Tate Modern, among many others.
Rennie Museum opened in October 2009 in historic Wing Sang, the oldest structure in Vancouver’s Chinatown, to feature art from Rennie Collection. The dynamic exhibitions, showcasing works by artists from around the world, are open free to the public through engaging guided tours. The Museum’s commitment to providing access to arts and culture is also expressed through its education program, which offers free age-appropriate tours and customized workshops to children of all ages.
