On November 10, 8 p.m., FUSE: A Conjuring takes over the Vancouver Art Gallery (750 Hornby Street).
Featuring artists from across the country, FUSE: A Conjuring creates a lively environment where participants can cast a contemplative glance into how artists' materials and processes create a magical art experience.
Transmitting late into the evening, a selection of musicians and sound artists from electronic label Genero will offer an evocative four-hour set. Participating artists include Yu Su, Minimal Violence, Hick, and Soledad Muñoz. Small Practices of Deep Looking has artists and musicians Tsēma Igharas, Stephen Murray, Simranpreet Anand, and Stacy Ho respond to and offer their unique perspective on individual works from the gallery's fall exhibitions.
Toronto-based company Grape Witches will be operating a pop-up wine bar, while guests will be entertained in a room of projected shadows and reflections that has been designed by Vancouver-based artist Erika Lövgren Holt. Back by popular demand is an interactive holographic mask designed by Shawn Hunt, a Heiltsuk artist from Waglisla (Bella Bella).
Artist Kate Barry and dancer-actor Michael-Ann Connor will deliver an in-depth lecture on the history of painting, while dancers Rianne Svelnis and Kelly McInnes perform collaborative dance Rolling Boil.
During the evening, all four floors of the gallery's current exhibitions will be on view.
Tickets for FUSE: A Conjuring are $29, available at the door. The event is free for Vancouver Art Gallery members.
