Abstract (English)

" Mainstreeters: Taking Advantage, 1972-1982 is a website, exhibition and publication that addresses the history of a group of artists and cultural practitioners who worked together in Vancouver from 1972 until roughly 1982. Comprised of eight core members ­– Kenneth Fletcher, Deborah Fong, Carol Hackett, Marlene MacGregor, Annastacia McDonald, Charles Rea, Jeanette Reinhardt and Paul Wong – the Mainstreeters lived and worked communally in and along Main Street, where they developed ambitious projects and a notorious reputation. The "gang" made multi-faceted work that deals with their environment, explores video and media, "live" performance and photographic documentation. " -- Exhibition website.
