This spring marks 15 years since Other Sights For Artists’ Projects has been in operation. Join us on Social Media to celebrate pas projects and explore collaborator memories and photographs.
Be sure to stop by Expo Boulevard near Stadium/Chinatown Skytrain Station to take in the four billboard series that Howard Ursuliak and Other Sights created as part of Capture Photography Festival’s Pattison Outdoor Billboards Public Art Project Series. FLOOD (Displaced Horizon) is the most recent in a series of Other Sights projects that consider the Vancouver foreshore and waterways as public space. This is the second time that Other Sights has created a billboard series for Capture. In 2014/2015, Other Sights produced Monument to Mysterious Fires, another photography series that was meant to trigger historical and recent memories of the Mt. Pleasant neighbourhood. FLOOD (Displaced Horizon) is on view until the 17th of May.

In light of the continually developing COVID-19 pandemic, and in line with public health announcements, all upcoming Blue Cabin Events have been canceled. The Cabin is closed to the public until further notice. Our team hopes that everyone takes care in this challenging time and encourages you all to show your support for community, especially those who may not have equal access to resources for physical and mental well-being at this time. Blue Cabin staff are continuing to work remotely, and are available via email to answer any questions. Stay tuned for potential events that may be moved online during this period of self-isolation.
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.
