GOODS | The Chinatown Experiment Is Set To Host New Series Of Pop Ups This Month
The GOODS from The Chinatown Experiment
Vancouver, BC | January was a fantastic month! Blumin Warehouse, Sincerely Slow, and our pop-up workshops were huge successes thanks to your support, Vancouver. February provides opportunities to hide from the winter doldrums and experience some of Vancouver’s finest emerging artists. From a Ben Barber solo exhibition and an art + design show to a Spanish inspired tapas gallery cafe, there’s plenty popping up on Columbia St. this month. Take a look after the jump…
January 30 – February 4 | Very Rare: A solo exhibition by Ben Barber
Comprised of paintings, sculptures and other media? VERY RARE displays works that explore the means of which culture becomes fetish, and products turn to icons. Using well known objects from daily life countered with artmotif’s,the viewer is given a view into a world that is uncomfortable yet seemingly familiar.
February 6 – 9 | Continuum: Art + Design pop up event
Fei Disbrow and Monica Berdin bring together art and design in their “Continuum: Art + Design” pop up event. Through entirely different working methods and use of materials, they have independently created bodies of work that exhibit as a coherent whole. Fei and Monica are similarly attracted to empathetic materials and are influenced by the body: how it is used, seen and acts within our cultural context.
February 14 – 27 | Jerez Gallery & Cafe
This pop up is inspired by a recent trip to Andalusia, Spain. Fusing art and Spanish inspired tapas the space will be transformed into a place to slow down and enjoy one’s environment. The permanent exhibition on display will feature two Canadian artists: Susanne Gartlan & Stephanie Faubert.
The Chinatown Experiment’s mission is to strengthen Vancouver’s creative community by providing accessible space and support at our storefront in Chinatown and around the city.
