Mariane Bourcheix-Laporte | Operation Yellow Helmet Perk
One of the benefits of being an artist-run centre is having talented artists on our Board. They bring enthusiasm for VIVO’s mission, a dedication to making us more successful, and an artist’s perspective to guide our plans and policies.
Mariane joined VIVO’s Board in February 2014 and has been active on our Fundraising Committee, HR Task Force, and is our PAARC Rep. She’s also the person behind our Operation Yellow Helmet graphics and video.
Thank you Mariane for your commitment to VIVO and for making a difference in Vancouver’s cultural community.
Mariane has donated prints of her piece, I Would Like to Revolutionize But I Am Stuck With Reform, as a perk in our Operation Yellow Helmet Campaign. Help build a better VIVO through your donation.

I Would Like to Revolutionize But I Am Stuck With Reform is part of the ongoing series of print, performance and installation-based works that examines the tensions existing between one’s revolutionary dreams and the realities of the politico-institutional instruments governing social life. The work appropriates a quote from Lucy Lippard and its form plays with the of performativity of activist referents.
