Arteries: November 2014

By Genevieve Michaels

VANCOUVER —

Pandemonium – A Rain City Illustration Show
Opening November 6
Hot Art Wet City

Rain City Illustration is the largest organization to be affiliated with Emily Carr University, comprising over a hundred artists. Created in partnership with the school’s illustration major, the collective showcases an impressive mishmash of local talent. This exhibit will include work by up-and-coming Rain City illustrators like Chelsea O’Byrne, Flavia Chan, and Jane Q Cheng.

Coalescence: A Body of Memories
Opening November 14
Gallery Gachet

If art is a descriptor of the human experience, then it must portray as much suffering as joy. Through the works of Kelly Gough and Osvaldo Ramirez Castillo, Coalescence will explore “memory, violence and the impacts of trauma” in the aftermath of war. The exhibit will bring together the artists’ different perspectives in a variety of mediums including sculptural installations and detailed multimedia drawings. Accompanying the show will be a Nov. 26 artist talk “exploring trauma and the artistic process.”

Shimabuku
Opening November 21
Contemporary Art Gallery

The CAG’s final exhibit of the year will showcase the work of Japanese artist Shimabuku. The art to be displayed has never been previously seen in Canada and will include installation, video, drawing and performance. The artist’s work deals with perception and our everyday world – how the most mundane activity could, viewed differently, become fantastical and complex. To give you a taste of what to expect, his previous work includes a video of him riding the Tokyo subway with an octopus in a fish tank.

Catherine Pulkinghorn: Home Dream Home
Opening November 28
Access Gallery

For this solo exhibition, Catherine Pulkinghorn turned inhabiting her first apartment into an extended piece of performance art. After turning to a variety of housing experts for their opinions on her new living space, Pulkinghorn used their evaluation as a vehicle to examine the differences between representation and reality – a touchy subject in Vancouver when it comes to finding affordable housing. The aim is for the information gathered to serve as “a set of research and findings [for] Vancouver citizens engaged in the onerous search for affordable housing.”
