This Thursday marks the opening of SWARM, an annual event (now in its 14th year) that celebrates artist-run culture in Vancouver.

This will be the first SWARM since last October's Institutions by Artists "convention," where artist-run culture was not so much explored (through critical self-examination) as assumed, asserted and, despite a lack of scholarship on its centres, academicized by too many tenured professors.

The picture above is of GAM Gallery, a "collectively-run organization that is located within and fronts ACME Studios in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside."
