In 2019, Open Space presents Blanketing by Jesse Campbell, the second annual installation in the stairwell to the gallery. Jesse is a Métis/Cree mural artist based in Victoria who has been involved in Open Space for many years in various capacities, starting as an emerging artist with the Indigenous Youth Artist Program (IYAP). He also, with assistance from technician Miles Giesbrecht, carried out the painting of Garry Neill Kennedy's Corrections last year.
We are thrilled to present the launch of the online publication for Forestrial Brain!
For those who were around the gallery in the summer of 2017, it's hard to forget Matt Shane and Jim Holyoak's epic project, Forestrial Brain.
Emerging out of the artists' eight-day hike along the West Coast Trail, the exhibition consisted of vast and immersive drawings of the forest that enveloped the walls at Open Space in an imaginative web of being.
Open Space artist run-centre presents Field Guides For Listeners, a collaboration between sound artist Jenni Schine and visual artist Jay White, which examines the relationship between art and science through studying the effects of salmon farming on the Pacific Coast of B.C.
