Bob Rennie emerges with new identity: Centre of Vancouver’s art world

October 24th, 2009 · 20 Comments

The oldest building in Chinatown is going to be the gathering point for a collection of who’s whos tonight, as people from the art world, the media world, the developer world and the political world gather at Bob Rennie’s new art museum. My feature story on Bob and his new role, along with the museum, is in the Globe today.

Given that some people see Bob as the evil agent of gentfrication and resortification in the city, I’m sure there will be criticism of anything he does,. perhaps especially of his interest in art that explores marginalization and oppression.  He’s a challenging, contradictory character for sure, not easily explained.
