Open Space presentsed Us Ones In Between, a group show the featured the work of eight emerging local artists: Ty Danylchuk, Caitlin Gallupe, Cody Haight, Liam Hanna-Lloyd, Cameron Kidd, Brooke Semple, Eden Veaudry and Erik Volet. Us Ones In Between was curated by Nick Robins.
The artists in Us Ones In Between were very productive; their profusion of output appeared unlinked to careerist objectives. With bee-like instinct, these artists produced a striking visual cornucopia, while sketching out their place in other art contexts outside of the studio/hive. Working in media ranging from paint, paper and assemblage to crochet and video, Open Space was filled to the brim with fustian colour. Us Ones In Between was a celebration of a niche community and an examination of art practice in Victoria, today.
An opening reception took place on Friday July 3, 8pm and music by Xarl Marx and DJ St. Christopher.
The closing featured screening, Tough Stuff from the Buff: experimental & activist video from the fringes of buffalo, ny. on Friday, July 24, at 8 p.m.
Every Tuesday at 8 p.m. throughout the show’s duration, Open Space held Art Jams which featured film screenings and drawing jams.
