Please join us for the launch of Babak Golkar’s Grounds for Standing and Understanding, which is presented in conjunction with the opening of the artist’s new exhibition Dialectic of Failure at the West Vancouver Museum.


Grounds for Standing and Understanding centres on Babak Golkar’s installation that was presented at the Charles H. Scott Gallery in the spring of 2012. The book includes in-depth essays by Jason Starnes and Abbas Daneshvari, with a foreword by Greg Bellerby.
