The Sunday Diigo Links Post (weekly)

  • Who knew that Bob Rennie (Vancouver’s “Condo King”) was amassing a huge art collection with a focus on “marginalization, oppression and resistance”? Very interesting article about a very interesting collector indeed. I would certainly love to visit his new museum.
    “The Downtown Eastside is marginalized, and a lot of what I have is about marginalization, oppression and resistance,” Mr. Rennie said as he walked through construction chaos a few days before opening. Some workers were installing the complex pieces created by Palestinian artist Mona Hatoum, while others were putting in more pedestrian items like air vents and doorknobs.
