Tonight is the first night of Swarm 18, a two-night opening of Vancouver artist-run centres' 2017-2018 seasons. In past years I might have written "a two-night opening of Vancouver artist-run centres' 2017-2018 exhibition seasons," but exhibitions are only an aspect of artist-run culture these days, so it is not so much exhibitions that are opening but the doors behind which they are mounted.
There are three Swarm events tonight (in addition to an opening at the Belkin). The one I will visit is LOVE AND ROCKETS at VIVO Media Arts.
Here is the press release:
