THIS Gallery is holding an art auction as a fundraiser for the Vancouver charity, Working Gear.

Working Gear is a volunteer-run charity, located in the Downtown Eastside neighbourhood of Vancouver. Working Gear’s mandate is to alleviate poverty by providing interview clothing and/or industry-appropriate personal protective equipment clothing and haircutting services to individuals experiencing unemployment or underemployment.

This evening of community will begin with an acknowledgment and blessing by Chief Bill Williams, találsamkin siyám, an Hereditary Chief of the Squamish Nation, followed by a performance to bring prosperity and good luck by Chinese lion dancers from the Chinatown Foundation.


The evening will culminate in both a silent and a live auction featuring work by the following artists:

Andrea Robin | Andrzej Korzec | Barbara Bryn Klare | Clare Palmer | Clotilde Orozco Lopez
Clyde Richard Brittain | David Ives | Devon Gifford | Elizabeth Barnes | Helena Wadsley

Art residency with hcma October 2020 - September 2021
2021.4.15

To broaden the discourse between disciplines, hcma's art residency program stimulates discussion and challenges preconceptions about architectural and design practice.

The invitation to an artist is to challenge, spark curiosity and help ask better questions about the world around us. www.HCMA.ca/tilt/artist-in-residence


I will be working with hcma's offices in Vancouver, Victoria and Edmonton to develop three interconnected site-specific works that reflect on what can unite and bring communities together.

Virtual Launch March 11, 2021


The Gallery invited submissions that redirect the eye away from the iconic photographic image toward new forms and representational culture. The aim is to assemble and display alternative representations that lead away from homogeneity toward an architecture and culture that claims no specific centre. The abolition of the centre, and its replacement with the void is a position in architecture and culture that redirects perception to the Periphery.
