      Façade Festival

      September 8 to 14 outside the Vancouver Art Gallery

      Just as the days are getting shorter again, B.C. contemporary artists light up the night with huge projected artworks across the historic façade of the gallery. Presented in partnership with the Burrard Arts Foundation, this year’s lineup (in chronological order, two per night) is: Dana Claxton and Khan Lee, Drew Young and Sandeep Johal (whose work is shown here in a rendering by Go2 Productions), Lindsay McIntyre and Howie Tsui, Bracken Hanuse Corlett and Josh Hite/Justine Chambers, and Natalie Purschwitz and Hyung-Min Yoon, wrapping up with an encore of all the artists’ work next Friday and Saturday nights (September 13 and 14).
