Images of the interior and exterior of houses provoked memories of home, while other installations lured me into a completely new and untouched—even surreal—realm. Continue reading

2×2

Satellite Gallery runs an internship program that often enlist students from Emily Carr University of Art and Design (ECU). Their enthusiasm and interest in taking on different roles in the field of art not only amaze us but also bring a source of energy that stimulates the gallery.

The followings are their reviews of each other’s work as artist and curator at ECU.
