We are pleased to be launching the complete series of NWC, a series of five essays by Northwest Coast First Nations artists. Each book features a single text by a Northwest Coast First Nations artist in which they reflect on the sociopolitical context for their contemporary art practices and engagement with traditional Indigenous Northwest Coast visual culture. We celebrate the launch of the complete publication series with a panel discussion between series editor, Dana Claxton, and contributing artists Brenda Crabtree, Morgan Asoyuf, Marika Swan and Roxanne Charles.

Artificial Gut Feeling Book Launch and Signing with Anna Zett

Sunday, October 20, 12-2PM
Emily Carr University of Art and Design
520 E 1st Ave, Vancouver

Berlin-based artist Anna Zett will join Or Gallery’s VABF table for the North American launch of their new book, Artificial Gut Feeling. Released by Belgium’s Divided Publishing, Zett describes this work as “Dedicated to the feminist revolution, the post-socialist subject of Artificial Gut Feeling questions logocentric and capitalist beliefs about the economy of meaning. This book gathers fists, guts and brains to gain a deeper understanding of the non-verbal roots of dialogue.” This book launch coincides with the opening of Zett’s first exhibition in Vancouver, Hold On at Or Gallery from October 17, 2019 through January 11, 2020.
