Trading Routes: Rivers, Fish and Oil is an exhibition taking place at and sponsored by the Gulf of Georgia Cannery Museum National Historic Site. Running from Spring 2015–2016 the year long show combines historical place — the context of the cannery itself — with art and artists engaging with issues of cultural change, oil, ecology and the development of industry. Artists featured in the exhibition include Ruth Beer, Kit Grauer, Lyle Wilson, Ian Mcallister, Richard Heikkilä-Sawan, Soledad Munoz, Tomas Borsa, JP Marquis and Kenna Fair. The exhibition also includes a screening of the animated feature ‘Black Gold’ directed by Woonam Kim (working with ECUAD animation students).
