FUSE
Crowd Studies
Friday, November 29, 2013
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. 

In addition to performances, FUSE-goers can see six current exhibitions: Charles Edenshaw, KIMSOOJA Unfolding, Muntadas: Entre/Between, James Hart: The Dance Screen (The Scream Too), Emily Carr in Haida Gwaii, and In Dialogue with Carr: Gareth Moore – Allochthonous Window.

    Hey guys, if you have a blue ESV wrist band then please bring it tonight! It will make it easier to recognize who is a member once our group inevitably splits up a bit.
