Should the art gallery move to a new centre downtown? Are traditional art galleries still relevant in the era of Indigenous reconciliation? Guests Jon Tupper (Director of the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria) and Charles Campbell (prominent local artist) discuss these thorny topics and consider the impact that the pandemic and Black Lives Matter have had on Victoria's art scene. Tupper provides an update on the search for a new home for the gallery, and Campbell calls for an Indigenous-run art space in Victoria: "To contend with [our history, through art] is globally important."
