The Vancouver Art Gallery presents the first Canadian exhibition by Chinese contemporary art collective Polit-Sheer-Form Office (PSFO) Fitness for All from November 10, 2018 to March 31, 2019 at Offsite (1100 West Georgia Street). Comprising of artists Hong Hao, Xiao Yu, Song Dong, Liu Jianhua, and curator/critic Leng Lin, PFSO’s multi-disciplinary projects address the idea of “we” in a “me” world. Their five-piece set of exercise equipment specially designed for Vancouver appropriates the publicly funded workout equipment found in city squares and residential compounds throughout China. Treating the work as sculpture for the betterment of visitors and passersby, PSFO explores the possibilities of shared experience through group activity.

Free and open for viewing by the public at Vancouver Art Gallery’s Offsite – 1100 West Georgia Street as of November 10.
