Something Like This | Reading List

PAARC has collaborated with the grunt gallery, the Or Gallery, VIVO Media Arts Centre, Open Space and Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art to commission curatorial research drawing from the print material indexed in the Repertoire of BCARCs’ Publications. Lorna Brown, Lucas Glenn, Tarah Hogue, Robin Simpson, and Benjamin Willems were commissioned to produce thematic curated readings lists and accompanying essays highlighting particular moments and orientations specific to BC’s artist-run histories. Through the publication of these reading lists, we hope to stimulate renewed interest in the practices and histories of BC ARCs from the particular perspective of their publishing activities. – PAARC

Simpson chose to focus on monographic reviews from Video Guide.  His essay, Something Like This, and reading list along with those of the other curators, are available through the links below.

All issues of Video Guide from Simpson’s list are now available online under Archive & Library – Special Collections.
