8pm to 1am
Art | Music | Performance
This FUSE brings the sociability of the artist to the forefront, as relationships are built and explored in a variety of site-specific, socially-charged practices that maintain unique relationships to human interaction. Join artists, performers, musicians and others in an investigation of art, performance and getting connected.
Some highlights of FUSE: Crowd Studies
• Join Douglas Coupland, in collaboration with the Vancouver Lego Club, to build a lego tower for a crowd-sourced art project for Douglas Coupland’s upcoming exhibition at the Vancouver Art Gallery in summer 2014.
• Artist Kimsooja presents her critically acclaimed performance art work, Beggar Woman, joined by 14 local performers and dance artists.
• Service oriented artist collective Instant Coffee creates “anti-social sculptures” that make you reflect on the slogan: Get social or get lost.
• Take part in Germaine Koh’s League project, where audience members are invited to play invented games with a new set of rules.
• DB Boyko and the Voice Over Mind Choir activates the Rotunda with a large-scale, participatory choral piece. Engage both body and mind in this expansive sound work.
• Hannah Jickling and Helen Reed bring crowd surfing to everyday life. Watch for their unique intervention outside the Gallery.
