Legacy Fund

The grunt gallery Legacy Fund is a permanent endowment managed by the Vancouver Foundation with the purpose of providing a strong and stable base of funds that financially support grunt and the artists (and community) we serve.

Our endowment was opened with $150,000 in 2006, and has grown to $624,246 today, generating an annual income from the endowment’s interest of approximately $22,000. This is a significant and reliable source of income that will provide economic stability for years to come and ensure grunt’s sustainable presence in the community. Once an endowment is established, it keeps on giving forever.

As a donor to grunt gallery’s Legacy Fund, you are not just supporting one artist or one exhibition; you are investing in the future of an organization that can continue to cultivate and support multigenerational artists and curators making diverse work at the forefront of contemporary art in Canada and beyond.

Donate to the grunt gallery Legacy Fund here.

Estate Plan Giving

A legacy gift is a gift for the future. Planning to leave a Legacy Gift in your Will is one of the most thoughtful ways to help others and leave a lasting impact on your community. You can even make your estate gift “in honour of” or “in memory of” a special person.

Would you like to include grunt gallery in your will? If so, please make sure to include this phrase:

I hereby leave (the residue, or $______ or ______%) of my Estate to the grunt gallery Legacy Fund (charitable registration #BN 119278794RR0001), which is managed by the Vancouver Foundation.

There are many kinds of Legacy Gifts such as simple bequests in a will or estate plan, a gift of life insurance, annuities, charitable trusts, endowments and gifts of property. These deferred gifts are most often arranged when you are preparing your will or updating financial plans. There are many options when it comes to Legacy Giving, making it possible for anyone to leave a legacy of care.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email Operations Director Meagan Kus: meagan@grunt.ca

 

VOLUNTEER

We are often looking for enthusiastic folks to help us out with our archives, events, and other programming. Volunteers have the opportunity to explore thirty plus years of grunt’s archive, practice technical skills, network, and learn all about how an artist run-centre operates first hand.

grunt extends its deep thanks to all of our past and continuing volunteers. Without your generosity many of our projects and events would not have been possible, and your contributions to the development of our archive cannot be understated. We wish everyone the best and we hope all of our volunteers and friends stop by grunt to say hello the next time they are in the neighbourhood!

Crossed

grunt gallery presents Crossed, an exhibition by artist Ahmad Tabrizi and curated by Makiko Hara. This multi-media exhibition creates a sense of portraiture compiled of Farsi script, piles of dressmaking pins, and glimpses of the artist himself – both visually and through audio.

Tabrizi studied comparative literature in Tehran, with an eventual goal to pursue a Ph.D in Persian Literature and a teaching career. His involvement in the student movement leading up to the Iranian revolution led to his flight from Iran after which he eventually found refuge in Vancouver.

“This installation [addresses] intellectual claustrophobia through language as a weapon of attack and defense; what is lost in the communication becomes loud sounds, weaponized sounds, sounds through the presence of pins. Pins are a universal symbol of pain, like a loud “ouch,” but silent at the same time.

It is also a portrait, but reduced to just eyes and language. The self-portrait of pinheads, though there is no specific self, is perhaps a very oddball portrait – oddballs of displacement and misplacement and the “door” separating Us and Them. The Persian language written on the “door” is used as decoration or beauty (surface). The English is used as tag or brandification – one as “unknown,” one as insult/poetry or slogan of the collective experiences of refugees, the exiled, marginalized or what is “normally” perceived as “the Others.”

– Ahmad Tabrizi, artist statement.

 Join us on Thursday January 15th from 7pm – 10pm for the opening reception of this exhibition. A curatorial text by Makiko Hara and an essay written by Lorna Brown will be available at the opening. The exhibition runs from January 15 to February 21, 2015.


Artist Bio:

Ahmad Tabrizi is an Iranian Vancouver-based artist who studied Persian literature in the University of Tehran in early 1980s. After arrival in Canada in 1987 as a political refugee, he studied at the Emily Carr University of Art and Design, dropping out in the second year. Ahmad has exhibited in various venues throughout the 1990s including Helen Pitt Gallery, Surrey Art Gallery, Photo Based Gallery, “A Walk is” Gallery, Canadian Craft Museum, and Community Art Council, just to name a few. He has been doing performance art at various venues including Western Front and the Abbey Studio.

Tabrizi has also co-written a catalogue essay for Shirin Neshat’s exhibit at Artspeak Gallery (1997) and most recently contributed an essay for Ali Ahadi’s exhibition at grunt gallery (2012). Also, he wrote a short story for Ann Murray Fleming’s short film Pleasure Film/ Ahmad’s Story.

He received the Exploration grant from Canada Council for the Arts in 1996 as well as the Emerging Artist grant in 1998.

Tabrizi has been working in the film industry as a costume designer since 1998.

Curator Bio:

Makiko Hara is an independent curator based in Vancouver. Hara was the curator at Centre A: Vancouver International Centre for Contemporary Asian Art between 2007 and 2013. She has curated numerous contemporary art exhibitions by Japanese, Canadian, and international artists for over 20 years in Japan and Canada. She has served as project coordinator for several international

exhibitions, including the Yokohama Triennale (2001/2005) and the Echigo Tsumari Art Triennale (2003). Hara was one of the three curators for the Scotiabank Nuit Blanche (2009) in Toronto. She has contributed essays to catalogues and magazines. Recent essays include an entry in Mutation, Perspectives on Photography, Paris (2011) and “Rethinking of Tokyo Art Speak,” in Institutions by Artists: Volume 1, Fillip (2012)
