The New Access Consortium Presents: A Collective Audit of the Vancouver Art Gallery

The New Access Consortium Presents: A Collective Audit of the Vancouver Art Gallery

Opening – Saturday November 7th 6-9pm
Exhibition runs: Sunday November 8th- December 13th

The New Access Consortium is the collective, decentered, non institutional organizational structure initiated by artist Carmen Papalia through which a fluid cast of members are supported in assessing the conditions of access in public and institutional spaces. This exhibition showcases an archive of experiential research, documentation and guiding texts from a closed meeting series on the topic of open and emergent models for access which culminated in an independent accessibility audit of the Vancouver Art Gallery —in which the terms of the audit are based in the participant’s subjective perceptions regarding what is accessible. Pointing to histories of marginalization and cultural violence, and illuminating the disabling power structures that limit one’s agency and potential to thrive, Arlene Bowman, romham pádraig gallacher, Taryn Goodwin, Jotika, Carmen Papalia, Myah Catherine Rose Wallace and aly de la cruz yip reflect on access while offering representations of their subjective experience of the supposed public institution that is the Vancouver Art Gallery.

WISH Drop-In Centre Society operates an overnight drop-in for women in street-level survival sex trade. In addition to a broad diversity of programmes, WISH also offers an Aboriginal Women’s Button Group. Having developed considerable pride in their cultural textiles, the women involved in the Aboriginal Women’s Button Group expressed interest in finding a way to display their art, explain what it has meant for them, and to be able to show a different side of themselves and their community.
