Over the next two years, Artspeak is shifting OFFSITE, taking artist projects outside the gallery to the street, airwaves and other alternative sites in Vancouver and beyond. OFFSITE will include performances, public projects, speaker series and collaborations that engage with innovative strategies of production. At the same time, Artspeak’s current gallery space is transforming into an exciting venue for publications, printed matter, readings and dialogue.
Mountain View Cemetery first opened in 1887. Closed to new burials for the last two decades, it has served as the staging ground for several contemporary art projects. It is currently undergoing a major transformation under the direction of Birmingham & Wood, Architects and Planners with Sandra Moore, MAIBC Principal-in-Charge and Annabel Vaughan, Intern Architect.
