You, Me & Us | Annual Collective Show 2019

You, Me & Us
From November 8 to December 20, 2019

Join us on Friday, November 8 from 6pm to 9pm for the opening reception of You, Me & Us, an art exhibition presenting new work by the artists of Gallery Gachet. The artists will be present.

Gallery Gachet celebrates over two decades of collectivity in art and culture this year with You, Me & Us, on view from November 8 to December 20, 2019. The exhibition features painting, sculpture, installation, photography, text, comics, found objects, sound, and process-based work from 17 of the artists who run this valued community-based art centre.

The artworks presented contend with form and process and address themes of collectivity, intra- and interspecies relations, ecological consciousness, Indigenous kinship, memory, and mental health, as well as destigmatization and safe supply in the context of the opioid crisis, and art as a practice of survival. Many of the artists who connect with Gallery Gachet are self-taught or working differently than academic and institutional conventions. You, Me & Us is a title borrowed from the work of a Collective Member Karen Irving, whose oil painting parallels the similar relationships whales have themselves and others whales, resembling the relationships humans have with each other.

Artists: Sharon Burns, Stella Castell, Haisla Collins, Elizabeth Dodds, Edzy Edzed, Bernadine Fox, Karen Irving, Pierre Leichner, Quin Martins, Daniel Orduña, Heather Pelles, Chav Petkov, Bill Pope, Tom Quirk, Bruce Ray, Iven Simonetti, Zola Star
