Cabin Fever, a new exhibition at the Vancouver Art Gallery, is the first-ever exhibition investigating the cabin’s architectural typology and influence on contemporary culture. The centerpiece of this exhibition is a collection of 17 architectural models installed in chronological order showcasing the cultural influences that have informed cabin design in North America since the 17th century.

In addition, two full-scale installations by American artist and filmmaker James Benning and a full-size cabin by Canadian artist Liz Magor will be mounted in the Gallery space.

From rustic sanctuary of the kind Henry David Thoreau wrote about in his book Walden (1854), to minimalist homestead popularized by coffee table books Rock the Shack and Hide and Seek, and websites such as Cabin Porn, the cabin and its connotations have evolved over centuries.

Cabin Fever explores this evolution through three key themes: “Shelter”, which introduces the cabin as a practical solution to patterns of westward expansion and emergency relief; “Utopia”, which examines the cabin as the ideal locale to practice introspection or to escape the conventions of society; and “Porn”, which positions the cabin as an idea fully integrated into popular culture.
