The first solo UK exhibition by Myfanwy MacLeod, in partnership with the Contemporary Art Gallery (CAG, Vancouver).

MacLeod is best known for her irreverent artworks that often explore the overlap between pop culture, folklore, traditions and histories. Her practice examines how perceptions of “high” and “low” culture are interpreted through themes of gender, privilege and value, and ranges from gallery exhibitions through to celebrated works in the public realm.

Her interest in how an image or object can be transformed to change its meaning and, importantly, the context of indoors or out plays a specific role within her deliberations and is the starting point for this exhibition.

Illustrating this proposition, Neighbours presents a selection of recent works alongside maquettes for public commissions. Revealing her process and interest in materiality, scale and meaning, these combine to embody the underlying playful humour of her practice while encompassing her ongoing interest in more profound environmental concerns.

Central to the exhibition is a sequence of framed watercolours used in 2018 as the basis for a public artwork, Neighbours, a series of large-scale posters displayed at 20 sites around Vancouver that corresponded with the 100th anniversary of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act established between Canada and the US, considered to be one of the most successful conservation laws in North American history.
