Exciting news!!!

Cafe for Contemporary Art is involved in the Canadian Art Foundation’s Gallery Hop 2010 Vancouver, on May 29th.

Since 1996, the Canadian Art Gallery Hop has “provided free gallery talks and mobilized audiences for art” in both Toronto and Vancouver. The event “acts as [an] educational vehicle to provide access and information for the art interested public with a day of engaging and enlightening discussions at local art galleries with art-world insiders sharing their views on general topics in the visual arts” (quotes courtesy of Canadian Art Foundation).

The day begins with a conversation and book launch at 11am-12:30pm at the Vancity Theatre, with curators Kitty Scott and Douglas Fogle as well with artists Lisa Anne Auerbach and Althea Thauberger.

Gallery tours and talks continue on in the day at various galleries throughout Vancouver from 1:30pm-5pm, followed by a special screening and reception for Tamra Davis’ documentary, Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child again at the Vancity Theatre.

These various events require tickets which you can buy here and more information on the Gallery Hop (times, other participating galleries, etc.) can be found at the event microsite.

We’re so excited to be involved in this!!
