Since its inception in July 2005, thousands of FUSE-goers have converged at the Vancouver Art Gallery for this unique adult event. Featuring live performances in the exhibition spaces, DJs and unexpected surprises, FUSE is Vancouver’s most popular art party—a place to see and be seen.
This edition of the Gallery’s signature event will awaken guests to a new consciousness around the radical presence of the body, language and sound. Participating artists look to performance as a tool through which to consider an undoing of past, a positioning of the present, and visions of a collective future.
Curated by Simranpreet Anand and Stephanie Bokenfohr, FUSE: Resonances will include performances by local and visiting artists Faith Sparrow, Salia Joseph, Ocean Hyland, Mike Bourscheid, Raven Chacon, Ralph Escamillan with Milton Lim, Elisa Harkins and Kapwatids (Kimmortal, Elysse Cloma and Joshua Ongcol).
The FUSE x CURRENT Art Bar is presented in partnership with CURRENT: Feminist Electronic Art Symposium. It will feature music and DJ performances by Nancy Lee (aka Which Nancy), Katayoon Yousefbigloo (aka Puzzlehead) and Dae Shields (aka Ital Blue) of Afro Van Connect, with Buni Kor and Vuyo. The Art Bar will also include live visuals by Zandi Dandizette and Kyla Yin (aka Kyinskies) and an installation by Colt Darling and Moniker Press.
Doors open at 7:30 PM. Cash bar. Credit cards now accepted.
