There are a lot of arts and cultural events going on in Vancouver right now, and on Saturday I went to check out the GO! Gallery, a collaboration between some local architects and designers [including my friend and former TA, Alex]. The installation is part of the Bright Light public art exhibition, a collaborative event in the Downtown East Side from Feb 12 – Mar 21.
Anyways, the GO! Gallery is in one of the oldest [and most secluded] courtyards in Chinatown. White umbrellas were used to create a canopy that is illuminated at night.. it’s a really cool space to be in. Plus on the night I went there was a fashion show with some traditional Chinese clothing and a Chinese opera singer which was pretty interesting. Oh, and they also have these awesome umbrellas for sale [last photo] with a map of the sites where Bright Light exhibitions are taking place.. super cool, I might just have to get one.
