Following the success of Room Divided and 4-Intersections, we hosted a group show called No Windows from Nov 27 to Jan 23rd. This is a unique curatorial collaboration between a group of graduate students from the Departments of Anthropology, Art History and Curatorial Studies at the University of British Columbia. Local artists, Adad Hannah, Jamie Drouin, Zoe Tissandier, and Rhonda Weppler + Trevor Mahovsky, worked with the curators to explore and challenge the boundaries imposed onto art objects in museum practice.

Since Satellite Gallery opened its door in late September 2010, a series of events took place to celebrate the birth of this new experimental space. We joined our neighbor, Blanket Gallery, for an opening reception with Instant Coffee’s Light Bar installation on September 29th. The artist collective hosted a successful event that helped introduce us to the public and our grand opening followed on the evening of October 23rd with a performance by Petroglyphs.
Recognizing the importance of experimental art in the history of Vancouver, we had the honor of co-hosting Flakey: The Early Works of Glenn Lewis with the Presentation House Gallery as our inaugurating exhibition. Two of Lewis’ early works, Room Divided and 4 Intersections, were featured in our gallery on separate occassions. Room Divided (1969) was an installation exhibited from September 29th to October 17th and 4 Intersections (1970), a video installation, was shown in a complete state for the first time from October 21st to November 7th. We also hosted our first book launch event on the evening of October 26th with Lewis performing his 16 mm film Forest Industry.
