Glenn Lewis: Four Intersections

Satellite Gallery, Vancouver
Curated by: Reid Shier and Helga Pakasaar

October 23, 6 to 9pm | Opening Reception


Satellite Gallery opens with a significant nod to Vancouver’s own history of experimental art, presenting an early video projection of a performance artwork by Vancouver-based artist Glenn Lewis. Exhibited here for the first time in a completed state, 4 Intersections depicts a performance that took place in 1969, only a few blocks away from Satellite Gallery, marking the spaces of Dunsmuir and Homer, Hamilton and Pender streets.

Glenn Lewis was born in Chemainus in 1935 and studied at the Vancouver School of Art, UBC (where he also taught), and with the ceramicist Bernard Leach in England. Initially working in ceramics, by the mid 1960s he began developing a remarkably expansive art practice that has been widely exhibited, performed and screened.

4 Intersections is a part of the exhibition Flakey: The Early Works of Glenn Lewis, on display at Presentation House Gallery in North Vancouver through November 14, 2010. It is curated by Reid Shier and Helga Pakasaar, and organized by the staff of Presentation House Gallery.
