The Pacific Association of Artist Run Centres will launch the Curated Reading Lists from the Repertoire of BC ARCs’ Publications project, realized in collaboration with the grunt gallery, the Or Gallery, VIVO Media Arts Centre, Open Space and Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art. Each participating centre commissioned curatorial research drawing from material indexed in the Repertoire of BC ARCs’ Publications. These commissions constitute the second step in the development of a multi-phase project hosted on ArcPost, which aims to stimulate renewed interest in the practices and histories of BC artist-run centres through their publishing activities.

Participating curators will introduce their research and title selection after which a “5 à 7” reception will be held with food and refreshments.

Project collaborators include: Lorna Brown (commissioned by the Or Gallery), Lucas Glenn (commissioned by Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art), Tarah Hogue (commissioned by the grunt gallery), Robin Simpson (commissioned by VIVO Media Arts Centre), and Benjamin Willems (commissioned by the Open Space). These curators have been commissioned by partner organizations to produce thematic curated readings lists and accompanying essays highlighting particular moments and orientations specific to BC’s artist-run histories.
