|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.
