We’re excited to announce that our spring issue, TCR 3.35 on Place and Displacement, will be available at Jeremy Borsos’ artist talk on The Blue Cabin — Wednesday, June 20th at 7:00pm at Vancouver’s grunt gallery.
As grunt gallery explains,
“Representing the last vestiges of a cultural tradition of artists and others living in squatter’s shacks along the foreshores of this region’s waterways, Al Neil and Carole Itter’s Blue Cabin was one of many structures that dotted the shores of Burrard Inlet. Recently, the land adjacent to the cabin, MacKenzie Barge and Shipbuilding, was sold to Polygon Homes for redevelopment … The cabin was moved five kilometres west to a secure storage lot for repair and remediation.”
grunt gallery has been working with Other Sights for Artists’ Projects and Creative Cultural Collaborations to restore the cabin, with plans to offer it as a floating artists’ residency space, located “on the waterways of the Lower Mainland.”
The Blue Cabin will be exhibited at grunt gallery from June 15 through July 28th, 2018, and is curated by Glenn Alteen.
TCR 3.35 includes a feature on Jeremy and Sus Borsos’ work to restore the Blue Cabin during 2017 and 2018.
