Abstract (English)

"It is well understood that an archive presents a reality not only by who and what is included, but also by who and what is left out. An oft-naked city in its way, Vancouver's many stories are collected and retold by its institutions small and large, and its populations visible and obscured. As artist-run centres, we have long travelled an alternative path, and along the way built archives of material independent of prevailing narratives and established discourse. Independent archives yes, but also forever dependent on our communities and each other.

As we enter out fourth and fifth decades respectively, grunt gallery, VIVO Media Arts, and the Western Front are collectively looking back upon over one hundred years of emerging and evolving practice in the arts. The programs and events this week showcase only a thin slice of this whole but we feel that thy act as a critical expression of the wrks we do to preserve, animate and rethink our archives." -- p.
