Contemporary Calgary and the Illingworth Kerr Gallery are proud to present an artist talk by the Toronto-based collective VSVSVS, presented in conjunction with their exhibition at the same time, curated by Nate McLeod, on view at Contemporary Calgary from November 24, 2016 to February 12, 2017.
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. Members include Wallis Cheung, Ryan Clayton, Anthony Cooper, James Gardner, Stephen McLeod, and Miles Stemp.
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.
