Thru the Trapdoor and Dylan Neuwirth

On Main Gallery
Vancouver BC – Apr 23-Apr 26, 2014

With the building at 1965 Main Street now sold, both VIVO and On Main Gallery have gone from being multi-year leaseholders to month-to-month renters. Normally, situations like this can paralyze its tenants, but not VIVO co-founder and On Main director Paul Wong. He has taken over the recently vacated storage locker space in the building’s basement and converted it into a one-time-only exhibition space.

As of this writing, Wong is assembling a team of artists and curators for what he hopes will be an extravaganza on par with Vancouver’s historic Artropolis exhibitions of the 1980s and ’90s. Participants for Thru the Trapdoor (the trapdoor that leads from On Main Gallery to the basement) have yet to be confirmed, but visitors can expect a multi-media sensorium of sound, light, performance and spectacle.

Meantime, a neon work by Seattle-based Internet artist Dylan Neuwirth will be available 24/7 in the windows of On Main. In describing Neuwirth’s work, the mercurial Wong has this to say: “When I first saw his MMXIV posts, I responded with: ‘This work is so good, I am seething with jealousy.’ I love this show – it’s accessible and post-punk. He has taken digital ephemeral chatter and has crafted it into immortal objects of glass and neon gas. I am basking in its glow.”
