FROM THE EDITOR
This issue is our third release for the Vantage Art Projects online magazine, a nomadic and project-based endeavour and is the virtual extension of a collaborative exhibition and artist project Ferality in Nameless Realms, curated by Jenn Cacciola and SK Reed.
Vantage Art Projects began in 2008 as an arts communication venture with a unique concept for exhibitions-in-print, media and publishing projects. VAP 2020 continues in the same spirit as we expand to be a collaborative, curated, artist-run project combining both virtual and IRL (in-real-life) opportunities, exhibitions, and projects.
The three pillars of VAP:
- Creating alternative and parallel, collaborative opportunities for emerging and under-represented contemporary artists;
- Using accessible language to foster broad engagement with the contemporary arts;
- Leveraging technology to communicate and connect about the contemporary arts.
We believe that art is an essential service.
Vantage Art Projects is grateful to be a guest on the unceded territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
