On Sat Oct 23 at 6 pm, MOA, the Belkin, and Presentation House will open the doors to a new, shared gallery space in the heart of downtown Vancouver. The Satellite Gallery, made possible with the generous support of the Michael O’Brian Family Foundation, will provide unique opportunities for all three venues to explore the boundaries of artistic and institutional practices.
Don’t miss the Gallery’s opening party on Oct 23! A special performance of Petroglyphs,a new work by Victoria-based artist Peter Morin, will take place at 7:00 pm, just before the opening remarks at 7:30 pm. Peter uses a six-square-metre button blanket and new petroglyphs to explore connections between indigenous knowledge, community, and urban spaces. His performance is organized by the UBC Museum of Anthropology. 4 Intersections, a work by Vancouver artist Glenn Lewis, will be on display in the Satellite Gallery through Nov 7, 2010. His exhibition is made possible by Presentation House.
