1) [Vancouver] If you didn’t get a chance to stop by grunt gallery for the exhibition “10 Years of State of Emergency” then fear not. You can still check out the co-exhibition over at Gallery Gachet which runs until Sunday May 25.

Catch up with ATSA on this interview written by Maria Fedorove and Gizem Sozen.

2) [Vancouver] Last week, grunt gallery had a get-together to introduce new staff-members and volunteers. Robert Chaplin stopped by and told us about his exhibition that opened last week, About Time. It’s at the Unit/Pitt gallery until June 28.

3) [Vancouver] Claiming Spaces: Voices of Urban Aboriginal Youth is opening at the Museum of Anthropology on June 1, 2014. The show includes work by a number of indigenous youth artists, it’s probably a good idea to keep an eye on some of these up-and-coming youth artists. The show is curated by Pam Brown and curatorial assisted by Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers. The opening reception has an incredible line-up of musicians and DJs including Skookum Sound System, check it out here.

4) [Vancouver] We’re pretty amazed by the work produced for the Year of Reconciliation project. Many will recognize Sonny Assu’s graphic style on bus shelter posters around the city. But perhaps you’re not as familiar with Gabrielle Hill’s work, she’s involved with a project that includes Tania Willard and Peter Morin. We’re also looking forward to getting downtown to see Krista Belle Stewart’s, Her Story.

5) [Toronto] And to wrap it up, we truly wish we were in Toronto for Rebecca Belmore‘s solo exhibition, Kwe. Did you see it? Let us know on Facebook or Twitter.
