Thank you for the clarification.
The Upper Harbour Place office complex along Vic West’s Tyee Road will feature an art exhibition from artist Jeremy Borsos will feature a portion of a former Victoria foundry building. The exhibit opens tomorrow. More from Reliance Properties, which has made the exhibition space available:
Reliance Properties is expanding its commitment to Victoria’s arts and culture community by donating space for a free public arts exhibit with historic significance. Lost Foundry/Fukushima Rising is a collaborative exhibition that will be displayed starting this Friday in a vacant space at Upper Harbour Place, a pair of office buildings that Reliance bought recently.
“We have long been supporters of arts and culture in the communities in which we build,” said Jon Stovell, president & CEO of Reliance Properties. “Art gives communities a unique identity, it starts conversations, it brings people together – the value of which is immeasurable.”
The Lost Foundry installation by Jeremy Borsos is a massive 38-foot portion of the historic Victoria Foundries building façade that he acquired in 1996 when the building was demolished. It has sat under his house – numbered and documented – for 30 years. The dramatic red display will look across the Upper Harbour to the original site of the foundry which is visible through the floor-to-ceiling windows. Fukushima Rising by Lance Olsen is sound composition and a suite of acrylic and oil pastel paintings.
“This exhibition could not be realized without the support of Reliance Properties,” said exhibit curator Sue Donaldson, who spent 15 years working at BC’s Arts Council.
Reliance has a notable list of arts/culture initiatives in Victoria, including:
🔹The Artists’ Studio Project at 780 Blanshard, a Reliance building of artists’ studios that is becoming the largest arts hub in the city centre.
🔹Reliance is fulfilling the city’s vision for an Arts & Innovation District at Capital Iron Lands:
🔹Reliance has a commitment to provide land for a new home for the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria
🔹The future master-planned community will have live/work artists’ studios.
In Vancouver, the company donated $7 million to Emily Carr University of Art & Design, the institute’s largest-ever single donation. Last year, Reliance initiated and funded a permanent public art commission by celebrated artist Douglas Coupland.
Lost Foundry/Fukushima Rising is a free exhibit that runs from Friday, February 4 to Sunday, March 6. Public hours are 12pm to 5pm. Entrance is the ground floor of 655 Tyee Road (water side).
I think that's the former goodlife space?
