Final Walk-Through

Last Monday SFU Audain Gallery curator Amy Kazymerchyk, Western Front Executive Director Caitlin Jones, Griffin Art Projects Director Lee Plested and CSA co-founder and curator Steven Tong came together for a final walk-through of the VAG's Ambivalent Pleasures exhibition. It was my honour to hold the microphone and listen as the group spoke with eloquence, insight and honesty of a show comprised of artists that the four of them have worked with in the past (a number of the works on display were first shown at their galleries), but also of a curatorial frame that has more in common with expediency and brute pragmatism than lyricism and risk.
