Art in living group

DEFINITION

Founded by Vancouver artists Fred Amess and B.C. Binning, it was a post World War II movement of massive intervention in architecture and planning. For many of the members, it was a turning away from The Artist Guild movement with allegiances to Communism and imprisonment of some of its activists. Art in Living Group exponents preached that modernist architecture had an uplifting moral and spiritual effect. The Group sponsored exhibitions of photographs and drawings of modern architecture from all over the world. As a result, many artists of Vancouver built modern style homes in the suburbs. This focus resulted in a defection in their artwork from social realist themes of The Guild Group to realistic depictions of architectural landscapes and tangible objects.
