Summer 2017 Events

ArtsScene Vancouver had a busy summer!

In July we hosted our panel discussion, Why Analog Photography Matters As Never Before at 163 W Pender. With analog photography currently experiencing a revival, the topic produced a lively discussion with panelists Allison White, Rick Etkin, Nicole Langdon-Davies, and moderator (and ArtsScene Co-Chair) Alistair Henning.

In August, “For Many Weary Miles” was a pop-up visual art show at Back Gallery showcasing work by Vivien Elizabeth Armour, Berlynn Beame, and Chase Keetley. Over a couple of evenings, August 10 and 11, Co-Chair Akeena Legall moderated panels investigating artistic and political expression across Black diaspora, with guests Barbara Chirinos and Cecily Nicholson.

In June we were “Insolent” showcasing the work of Laurent Craste and his new ceramics exhibition, Revolution's Small Collateral Damage. Moderating the June 9 panel discussion, Co-Chair Alistair Henning was joined by the artist, and by Shaun Dacey, Director of the Richmond Art Gallery.

All three events attracted diverse local audiences, and we look forward to showcasing more outstanding Vancouver talent and ideas during the rest of 2017 and beyond!
