The Future is Floating is a collaboration with SydFest in Australia. In Early 2018, Other Sights producers Vanessa Kwan and Lorna Brown were Curators-in-Residence at Sydney Festival. Work continues on this project with Other Sights again visiting the festival in 2019, also joining them as Canadian Indigenous Artists in Residence, Jeneey Frei Njootli (January 2019), and Cheryl L’Hirondelle (July 2019). For more news and updates on this project, visit our social media channels.
Other Sights for Artists’ Projects, grunt gallery and Creative Cultural Collaborations (C3) are thrilled to announce the public launch and first open house of the historic Blue Cabin Floating Artist Residency on August 25, 2019. Join us at Plaza of Nations in False Creek to celebrate the launch of this project. If you would like to learn more, you can also sign up to the Other Sights mailing list for Blue Cabin updates.
Other Sights, grunt gallery and C3 have successfully raised two-thirds of the funds required to complete construction on the artist in residence deckhouse and to support the first three years of Blue Cabin programming. There are many ways in which you can support the project, please reach out to Amy Nugent (firstname.lastname@example.org) to find out how. Direct donations can also be made through grunt gallery.
In addition to the Big Rock Candy Mountain Website, there are several other locations across the country where you can purchase QA CHEW’S Bubble Trouble Gum. We’ve listed them all for you so you’ll never go without.
Inspired by the mixed texture of self-published artist zines The Foreshore Listens responds to, expands on, and incorporates elements of The Foreshore sessions. The process of developing these audio works started with recordings commissioned from past Foreshore Session presenters. Invited to consider to a series of prompts from a foreshore in the distant future the responses range from ambient recordings to poetry to foley of a longed-for place. Session presenters were Bracken Hanuse Corlett, Lindsay Dobbin, Journée sans Culture, Laiwan, Justin Langlois, Cecily Nicholson, Kristina Lee Podesva, Carol Sawyer, and Jay White. Audio zine editors, Vanessa Campbell, Stacey Ho, Sarah Moore, and Dan Pon draw out complex constellations of thought and insight otherwise latent in the series and crystalizes their depth and urgency. All four zines are now available for live-stream listening and download.
