Rennie Collection, one of the largest collections of contemporary art in Canada, has evolved over a number of years to focus on works related to identity, social injustice, appropriation, painting and photography. The Collection is dedicated not only to the acquisition of established international artists, but also the work of emerging artists. Currently there are approximately 40 artists collected in depth with about 200 artists in total, including John Baldessari, Amy Bessone, Glenn Brown, David Claerbout, Martin Creed, Gilbert & George, Andrew Grassie, Rodney Graham, Mona Hatoum, Mary Heilmann, Thomas Houseago, Richard Jackson, Brian Jungen, Mike Kelley, Louise Lawler, Kerry James Marshall, Damian Moppett, Simon Starling, Ian Wallace, and Rebecca Warren. The collection, while based in Vancouver is usually spread across the globe, on loan to institutions like Guggenheim New York, MET, Pompidou, Smithsonian and Tate, amongst many others.
Bob Rennie, principal of Rennie Collection, is active in the Vancouver and international art communities. He is Chair of the Tate North American Acquisitions Committee and a member of the Tate International Council. Locally, he sits on the Board of Governors of Emily Carr University of Art & Design in Vancouver as well as University of British Columbia Provost's Committee on University Art. In 2009, renovations were completed on the oldest building in Vancouver's Chinatown to include a private exhibition space to display his collection to the public. Rennie Collection at Wing Sang holds two exhibitions a year with supporting catalogues; admission is free by appointment.
