In October I launched a new, alternative, online exhibition space called The GAG (www.gynocraticartgallery.com)
My goal for The GAG is that it functions as an online “community” art gallery. A platform that, as its online presence and notoriety grow, will be able to provide real traffic, visibility, and support for its featured artists, writers and curators.
Since The GAG was launched in the fall, the gallery has proudly featured the work of visual artists Kate Just of Melbourne AU, and Carolyn Stockbridge of Vancouver CA, and the writing of author and trans activist AJ Ripley of Fredericton, CA. Additionally, I had the privilege of distributing some gallery pins & chat about those artists, their work, and The GAG, with participants at the University Art Association of Canada conference (UAAC) at The Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University in early November. Promoting the work of the artists, writers and other creatives from The GAG is something that I intend to make a regular part of my participation at conferences, etc.
The gallery is really getting somewhere.
Coming up March 2nd, The GAG is thrilled be hosting its first satellite performance!
The Cafeteria is a performance by Manitoba based artists Elvira Finnegan (www.http://saltwatch.ca/) and Lisa Wood (http://lisawood.ca/). The physical performance THE CAFETERIA will take place at The University of Winnipeg on the 2nd, and updates about the work will be posted over the rest of the month at The GAG. We can’t wait!
That’s The GAG up to here.
