Enigmatic local author/artist Douglas Coupland has taken over VAG's first floor for the summer until September 1st. Full of his trademark modern pop art aesthetic and style, the colourful multimedia exhibit is a visual feast for the eyes and brain, showcasing Coupland's prolific and eclectic collection of work. It's an endless exploration of cultural identity through popular culture, utopian optimism, and  the prevalence of technology.
