A few of Vancouver’s most talented and inspiring citizens have come together to form the Platform Gallery - bringing public art in our rainy city to a whole new level of quality and excitement.
Their newest exhibit, Intersections, featuring seven essential locations throughout our city through the eyes of Vancouver-based designers, was revealed to the world on Thursday. But no fears if you missed it. You can check out the fun in my photos above, as well as enjoy the posters themselves on view at Vancouver’s Waterfront Station through the Summer of 2013 or on the interwebs.
And here is a short list of my favorite things from Thursday’s pop-up gallery (besides the obvious jaw-dropping, stunning posters):
1. The beautiful people that organized it (Ross Milne, Grace Partridge, Lizzy Karp, Anthony Casey)
2. The "intersections" donuts of chocolate and vanilla provided by Cartems Donuterie. They were MINI. Too cute and delicious.
3. Discovering that the space it was held in, The Chinatown Experiment, is dedicated to providing a space for pop-up shows to happen. So very cool and necessary in this city.
4. Seeing my old pal Beau House who worked with me at Adbusters and discovering that his studio, Post Projects, made one of my favorite posters (4th and Vine!).
