Walter Phillips Gallery, The Banff Centre Glyde Hall, St. Julien Way, Banff, Alberta

For the seminal Walter Phillips Gallery exhibition Vocation/Vacation staged in 1981, OCAD alumnus Garry Neill Kennedy developed a site specific work for which the Gallery attendant desk was altered to comply with the "Statement of Design Guidelines" prepared by The Banff Centre Aesthetic Committee. Positioned inside the gallery, the desk lends transparency to institutional practices. On the occasion of the 75th anniversary of The Banff Centre, Kennedy has been invited to recreate this significant installation, providing visitors with the rare opportunity to experience the work.

Free public tours of the exhibition are offered every Thursday at 6 p.m.
Entrance to the Walter Phillips Gallery is free.

Hours:
Wednesday through Sunday, 12:30 - 5 p.m.
Thursday, 12:30 - 9 p.m.
