• Reflecting Pool: Chantal New - Dec 3rd @ the fifty fifty arts collective

    Thu 12th Nov, 2020 - Fri 4th Dec, 2020

    Reflecting Pool

    Swimming pools are a space in history that have highlighted racial discrimination and social disadvantage. They have remained a luxury for the white and wealthy and have long been a symbol of the American dream, suburban haven, and a marker of status. In a way, they reflect the entirety of our social systems. Only those who fit a specific social group are able to create lives centred around pleasu... read more...

    Thu 17th Sep, 2020 - Fri 9th Oct, 2020

    (carrying wind, for now)

    For the length of a year, a big swath of blue scaffolding netting hung on one side of the building at the corner of Yates and Langley. I encountered it every day to and from work, and quickly became enraptured by the big blue and how the wind moved through and with it. Its invitation to pause and notice my surroundings transformed that generic city street into a space that felt profoundly comforti... read more...
