Tristesse and I will have the one two-person show in South Main Gallery's "Summer Seven" Series.
During the months of July and August, South Main Gallery will fill an age-old summer void and engage Vancouverites with a host of current shakers in the contemporary art world. Summer Seven at SoMa, more of an arts festival than an exhibition, will welcome cutting edge creators from Vancouver, Salt Spring, Portland, Bellingham, São Paulo and Los Angeles, and present their work in seven-day solo shows throughout the summer. Yes, you heard right: every week a new solo exhibit. This insolence decries the complacent attitude held by the gallery status quo.
“It’s always seemed odd to me that galleries resign themselves to uninspired and uninspiring group shows in the summer. We want to challenge that way of thinking,” says gallerist Don MacMillan, owner of SoMa Gallery
