Satellite Gallery’s first group show invites the public to decode the conventions of art and exhibition-making
November 27, 2010-January 23, 2011, Satellite Gallery, 560 Seymour Street, Vancouver, 2nd floor
No Windows, on view at Satellite Gallery from November 27, 2010 to January 23, 2011, is the result of a unique collaboration between the departments of Anthropology, Art History and Curatorial Studies at the University of British Columbia, as graduate students in each of these programs have joined forces to curate this new and exciting exhibition.
No Windows presents artworks by local and national artists Rhonda Weppler + Trevor Mahovsky, Adad Hannah, Jamie Drouin, and Zoe Tissandier. In their work, the artists explore the structures that underlie gallery and museum practices, and challenge visitors’ ideas about them as agents in the creation, mediation, and reception of art.
Satellite Gallery is a Michael O’Brian Family Foundation project with partners the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery and the Museum of Anthropology at UBC, and Presentation House Gallery. For more information, contact Karen Benbassat at 604.681.8425 or firstname.lastname@example.org

Works by Charles & Isabella Edenshaw
November 26, 2010 – September, 30, 2011
From the late 1800s to the early 1900s, Charles and Isabella Edenshaw produced Haida art that continues to inspire the finest Haida artists of today, many of whom are their descendants. What is the aesthetic that makes their work recognizable and so respected? How has it remained contemporary for more than 100 years? This exhibit addresses these and other questions by highlighting Charles Edenshaw’s engraved silver bracelets, as well as his wife Isabella’s basketry, which Charles painted. Media sponsor The Georgia Straight.
