The works within this exhibition explore the conventions of our photographic language and confronts the viewer with the possibilities and limits that it presents.
Tristesse Seeliger: The Map Is Not The Territory
March 6 – 28, 2015
Opening Reception: Friday, March 6, 7-11 pm
Join us at the gallery on Wednesday, February 18th at 7 pm for an artist talk with Trevor Van den Eijnden about his current exhibition, Sham-Real Shadows. The exhibition is on view Thursday-Saturday from 1-5 pm until February 21st.
The idea is we create wild socks with the help of local artists and designers, helping to promote and create paid work for artists in our community. Next we sell these socks to people all over this great city. Finally, with every pair of art socks sold we give a pair of socks to organizations in the Downtown East Side of Vancouver to distribute to people in need.
Trevor Van den Eijnden’s current work investigates the Anthropocene, our current global geological era born of the Industrial Revolution. ‘Sham-Real Shadows’ centers on the collection and comparison of naturalist wallpapers for their romanticized illusions of nature, as well as grappling with the effects of global climate change in the extremes of plausible dystopic and utopic futures.
We are pleased to once again present our online Holiday Catalogue for Paper Presents: Works on Paper and Printed Matter, a group exhibition and pop-up shop featuring many talented local artists working with the medium of paper as well as other gift ideas from designers in our boutique.
Well we are still little, but we are getting bigger. Come over to the Gam on Saturday night for a party – help us celebrate 5 years of Gam!
