Duplex, Slakthusateljéerna och Konsthall 323

Peace, Love and Frustration:

Grounds for Exchange

Presentation by artist collective Duplex,

August 29 at 6 pm


SLAKTHUSATELJÉERNA is pleased to present Peace, Love and Frustration: Grounds for Exchange, a talk by Canada-based artists Gabi Dao, Kara Hansen, Scott Kemp, Jordan Milner, and Tom Richardson. Over the course of the evening the group will present on their collective project Duplex, as well as their individual art practices. Duplex is a project space and pair of neighbouring studios located on the unceded territory of the Musqueam, Tsleil-Waututh, and Squamish Nations–otherwise known as Vancouver, BC. Having worked collectively since 2013, the group was brought together by a shared motivation for sustaining creative practice in their rapidly developing city. In response to this they facilitate a communal space with free programs that support emerging and experimental artistic practices in the form of exhibitions, performances, publications, readings and community events.

The occasion of this event was initiated as a conversation between artists at Slakthusateljéerna and Duplex, each sharing concerns regarding the ethics of artistic practice, the maintenance of community spaces, and their respective approaches to civic precarity.

Please join us at 6PM for complimentary refreshments and snacks. In addition, the visiting artists have engaged with Konsthall 323 which will be open to the public for the duration of the evening. The talk will begin at 7PM.
