Laiwan, Loose Work, exhibition at Or Gallery, 2008.
The Or Gallery, in conjunction with the Vancouver Queer Film Festival, is proud to present Loose Work, an exhibition by Vancouver-based artist Laiwan.
The exhibition has been organized as part of the Vancouver Queer Film Festival’s 20th Anniversary Award, which recognizes an artist who has made a significant contribution to queer media art in BC. We are delighted to honour the work of this extraordinary artist, writer and activist, whose many contributions include organizing the first Vancouver Lesbian Film Festival in 1988 and founding the Or Gallery in 1983.
Consisting of new and older works, the exhibition will highlight Laiwan’s interdisciplinary art practice, and will include her video works Automatopoeia and Remotely in Touch, as well as the Vancouver premiere of her multi-media installation DUET: ÉTUDE FOR SOLITUDEs.
The exhibition also marks the Or Gallery’s 25th Anniversary and move to its new home at 555 Hamilton Street.
Running concurrently with the exhibition will be a series of 24-hour window displays of Laiwan’s work at ONMAIN.
The Or Gallery gratefully acknowledges the support of Canada Council for the Arts, the British Columbia Arts Council, the City of Vancouver, and our members and volunteers.
