Pop-up concert lovers, take note! The Vancouver Art Gallery is hosting two back-to-back live music performances this week as part of a new series called New Music at the Gallery. Visitors of the gallery can expect to see concerts by the New Coast String Quartet, followed by a special celebration of Pride by Feven Kidane Quartet.

The music

Presented in partnership with the Canadian Music Centre BC, the former will draw inspiration from the Gallery’s current exhibit, The Imitation Game: Visual Culture in the Age of Artificial Intelligence. The latter will kick off Pride at the Gallery in celebration of Vancouver’s 2SLGBTQAI+ communities with compositions in the Black American Music, or jazz, tradition, inspired by the exhibition Uninvited: Canadian Women Artists in the Modern Moment.
