New Media Gallery

We are a public art gallery dedicated to presenting some of the most provocative and inspiring new media artists in the world. You’ll find works of art created using innovative technologies (AI, robotics, virtual reality), and you’ll find older technologies and ideas considered in new ways (magnetism, gravity, light, infinity, space). We focus on exhibition and program excellence, developing unique workshops and events that are designed to bring the changing world of technology to life in exciting and provocative ways. Visit us regularly to experience a new exhibition or arts event and discover why we have quickly become one of the most visited galleries in metro Vancouver!

Gallery Exhibition - Cartooney October 18 - February 2 (closed Dec. 9 - Jan. 7) Mungo Thomson (USA) Jennifer & Kevin McCoy (USA) Martin Arnold (Austria) Andy Holden (UK) Jason Salavon (USA) Patten (UK)

Cartooney features eight artists who explore the consistent laws and systems of a cartoon world; laws that relate to, or supersede, the laws of our human world. The rules we find there are often based on how cartoon characters view their world, rather than how we think things should actually work. Each of the works in the exhibition ask us to consider such things as physical laws, systems of language and gesture, the physics of motion or rules governing systems of events. The apparent precariousness or paradox of these cartoon worlds often mirrors the instability of modern life. In all the works the meaning of things can be perceived as contrary to expectation; paradoxically the contrary nature of failed expectations often throws open the doors of perception.

Russell Hotel 74 0

C A R N A R V O N

Constructed in 1907, the Russell Hotel opened in January 1908. The original owner, Elijah John Fader, was in the timber business and owned over a million dollars in property, industries, tugs and barges around New Westminster by 1914. He was an alderman from 1908-1909 before he sold the Russell in 1910. A Sapperton street was named after him in 1909. A local newspaper described this “travellers’ paradise” just before it opened: “The large lobby [has] cozy chairs and three circular seats around the pillars…finished in green leather to match the color of the woodwork. Two sides of the room and half of another entirely of glass, will let in an abundance of light during the day and at night seven hanging lights of four globes each will illuminate the room.” Though the hotel originally vowed to only allow men to work in the kitchen and the dining room, a year later, it announced that Fader’s mother-in-law was cooking a 30-lb. plum pudding as the Christmas dinner pièce de résistance. By 1909, Fader started renovation work, wanting “to introduce some of the attractive features of the Empress hotel at Victoria, while not servilely imitating them.” Other changes over the years included “pay when you enter” telephone boxes and a marble staircase connecting the billiard room and the rotunda. The Russell was a sought-after venue: there were banquets for May Queens and lacrosse teams, club meets and sales demonstrations (for example, Duntley Pneumatic Vacuum Cleaners, incandescent lightbulbs, “Biumgas,” and other inventions). Newspaper society columns for years had lists of prominent guests.

Russell Hotel, October 7, 1954 Photographed from the corner of Carnarvon and Alexander Streets. The Ladies and Escorts sign is at the back, on Alexander Street. Note all the glass windows at street level: over the years, these were the site of many crashes. IHP10276-003

By the 1980s, it became the College Place Hotel, with a bar in the basement. Its licensed establishments, Mugs and Jugs and Chicago Tonight, were reported to have sold their last drinks on December 29, 2007. Since January 2010, the Lookout Housing and Health Society has operated the Russell as a shelter and long-term supportive housing. During the building’s restoration, the plaster and panelling was removed to show the original Douglas fir stairs and other heritage elements.

“Complimentary banquet to Hon. A. Wells Gray on his elevation to the cabinet.” When it was built in 1907, the Daily News said of the dining room: “Two walls are of transparent glass, and the other two which form partitions are finished in plaster and dark green spruce. Four chandeliers of four lights each will light the room.” There was also a music balcony for six musicians and a piano. November 24, 1933. IHP1554
