The AGGV is thrilled to launch the publication Megan Dickie: Blue Skies which, along with images of Victoria based artist Megan Dickie’s exhibition and works, includes a written contribution from Kimberly Phillips, director of SFU Galleries in Vancouver who is also a curator, writer and educator.

The exhibition Blue Skies was presented by the gallery in June of 2019.

The recording of this program took place on the unceded traditional territories of the Lekwungen speaking peoples also known as the Esquimalt and Songhess Nations. We extend our appreciation for the opportunities we have to live and work in these territories and to continually expand our understanding of what it means to be on these lands with reciprocity and respect for those whose families have been it’s stewards from time immemorial.
