VSVSVS | Art Now
VSVSVS (pronounced VERSUS VERSUS VERSUS) is a six-person collective and artist-run centre based out of a warehouse in the Portlands of Toronto, Ontario. Formed in 2010, their activities encompass collective art making, a residency program, a formal exhibition space, and individual studio practices. Their collective work focuses on the collaborative production of multiples, drawings, video work, sculpture, installations, and performance. An open framework allows each member to play to their own interests and ends, while contributing to a common goal. Working with six heads is an experiment in being together too much and making things constantly. Members include Wallis Cheung, Ryan Clayton, Anthony Cooper, James Gardner, Stephen McLeod, and Miles Stemp.
The Winter 2017 Art Now Speakers' Series is organized and curated by Professor Christof Migone as a component of ongoing academic offerings in the Department of Visual Arts at Western University. The Series is generously supported by The Faculty of Arts and Humanities.
