The Vancouver Art Gallery, or the VAG as it is known around town [insert immature snicker here] is in my opinion one of Canada’s loveliest public art institutions. Known for protesters holding court on its steps, the largest collection of Emily Carr paintings in the world, and the stunning Neo-Classical architecture of the building itself – the VAG also offers something to the younger art viewing public, FUSE.
FUSE, initially established in the summer of 2005, is a night of multi-media arts and happens at the gallery on select Fridays. Life performance, DJs, light installation, and social gathering transforms a sometimes stiff and tempered environment into an interactive and dynamic art experience.
This Friday, March 12 you can experience FUSE:

FUSE goes lo-fi with a series of performances and environments designed to let you chill out, get down and take it easy. Get to know your neighbour by sending postcards to a stranger, enjoy free gifts by Natalie Puschwitz, performances by Carol Sawyer, Hello, Blue Roses, Kick Everything and more.
