Unbelievable


Saturday, July 22, 2017     10:00 AM

Museum of Vancouver, 1100 Chestnut Street, Vancouver, BC, Vancouver Locate on the map



The Museum of Vancouver (MOV) poses provocative questions about our perception of stories with Unbelievable – a new exhibition that dives deep into the vaults of MOV. On display from June 24 – September 24, 2017, this quirky exhibition assembles iconic artifacts, storied replicas, and contested objects for a mind-bending exploration of the role stories play in defining lives and communities – and what happens when we question the tales we’ve long relied upon. Unbelievable objects include the Thunderbird totem pole that appeared in controversial filmmaker Edward Curtis’ 1914 work In the Land of the Head Hunters; contemporary ‘totems’, each with contrasting stories about a point in time in Vancouver; and artifacts illustrating the complex narrative around Vancouver’s relationship with First Nations communities. Visitors will also be encouraged to create their own tales about surprising artifacts found within the MOV collection.
