Buddy Palace, exhibition at Or Gallery, 1997.
Buddy Palace is a group exhibition co-curated by Geoffrey Topham (now Geoffrey Farmer). The exhibition showcases work by recent graduates of the Emily Carr Institute of Art. Linked by their common pop thematics, these four artists herald the emergence of new sensibility in Vancouver. Long dominated by photo-conceptual practices, a new generation of artists are working against the formal and aesthetic coolness of much of this past work by foregrounding a low tech and immediate working method which is critically interrogative of media culture, and foregrounds humour and spontaneity.
