GABI DAO is an artist, organizer and editor/producer of the irregularly published Here Nor There podcast series. Her work begins by examining the tectonics of cultural and subjective memories and manifests as multi-media installations, object making, sound and occasional writing. Dao co-organizes events, exhibitions, musical performances with collaborators at Duplex, a studio and project space on unceded Musquem, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh lands. She has been involved in various exhibitions and projects at artist run centres and galleries in Vancouver, Calgary and Winnipeg. In 2016 Dao was the recipient of the Portfolio Prize and in 2017 was nominated for The Contemporary Art Society of Vancouver Artist Prize.

EMMA METCALFE HURST is an administrator, cataloguer, recorder, writer, and artist. She holds a BFA from Emily Carr University with a major in Critical and Cultural Practices and a minor in Curatorial Studies. More recently, she has been working with collections and archives viewing them as unique microcosms and psychological manifestations. In 2018, she published Liminal Ziplock, a small chapbook produced through Artspeak’s Emerging Writer’s Workshop; curated the online project Acts of Transfer: Women’s Performance in the Western Front Archive; and established SPIT (formerly LIT LIT LIT LIT), an experimental bi-monthly reading, performance, workshop, event, and podcast series with Christian Vistan.

AUTUMN SCHNELL is a Gwich’in tr’iinjoo currently residing on unceded Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh lands while studying at the University of British Columbia as a First Nations and Indigenous studies major. Autumn was raised in amiskwacîwâskahikan and recently moved to Vancouver and worked as CiTR’s Indigenous Collective Coordinator.

Artspeak is a non-profit artist run centre established in 1986. The mandate of the gallery is to encourage a dialogue between visual art and writing.

Artspeak actively contributes to cultural communities through our commitment to artists producing challenging, innovative work in diverse media, our affiliation with like-minded organizations, and the public interest we generate in contemporary art.
