FROM THE EDITOR

This issue is our second release for the Vantage Art Projects online magazine and it is a thrill to have two strong curatorial projects in this issue.

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 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 expresses is grateful to be a guest on the unceded territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
