CHARLENE VICKERS & MARIA HUPFIELD’S SEATTLE ART FAIR PERFORMANCE IN THE NEW YORK TIMES

A huge congratulations to Charlene Vickers and Maria Hupfield for their collaborative performance at the Seattle Art Fair being featured in the New York Times!

Jingles and Sounds For Speaking to Our Grandmothers is a collaborative performance inspired by Rebecca Belmore’s work, which featured a large megaphone for people to speak into. The duo seeks to both honour their forebears while expanding their investigations into the megaphone as an object to speak to history, to landscape, and the socio-political conditions that draw people together and apart.

CARLOS COLÍN, Mascara 001 (2014) Photograph pigment on cotton paper, 47″ x 31 1/2″ ed/3
Carlos Colín’s photographic work from his The Uprising of the Mask – The Iconoclastic Riotsseries was featured in Humble Arts Foundation’s Photography Highlights from the Seattle Art Fair.

This series of photographs responds to the resistance of the people in Latin America to maintain and preserve social traditions, local cultures, and the uprisings to sustain Latin American cultures and keep Indigenous Latin American roots alive.

Colín’s research investigates how contemporary art, artists, and art institutions are involved in current social movements and, by extension, how art contributes to social change and social activism in Latin America. As a Latin American artist using a range of media, Colín brings perspectives on the discourse of how art evolves inside societies, how it finds expressions, how it changes over time, and the implications this has for Latin America.

TANúYAP | Project Space at Fazakas Gallery
ANNOUNCING: TANúYAP PROJECT SPACE AT FAZAKAS GALLERY OPENING SEPTEMBER 2018

Fazakas Gallery is pleased to announce that we are expanding our operations to include a new gallery and project space, Tanúyap. Located downstairs from Fazakas Gallery (formerly WAAP), this new exhibition space will show rotating solo and group exhibitions of the Fazakas artists, as well as host special guest exhibitions by visiting galleries from across North America.

Tanúyap is an opportunity to renew our interest in putting Indigenous and non-Indigenous contemporary works in dialogue with one another through experimental and conceptual exhibitions. It will result in greater exposure for our existing artists and help to bring new artists into Vancouver to enrich the conversation.

Named in consultation with a Squamish speaker, Tanúyap is a Squamish word meaning ‘welcome everyone.’ This name is a gesture of friendship and exchange, and an acknowledgment of the unceded territories of the xwməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) First Nations on which we are located.

To help with this new step in Fazakas’ development we also welcome a new member to our team, Laurie White. Laurie is a curator and art historian with a master’s degree in Curatorial Studies from UBC. She has curated projects at Or Gallery, the fifty fifty arts collective, and Western Gallery. She has worked at the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery, Madrona Gallery, Griffin Art Projects, and for the education department at documenta 14, Kassel, Germany.
