Last year Jen Graves wrote an article called The Vancouver Problem which basically suggested that Vancouver might have a better art scene than Seattle. From that, Scott Lawrimore hosted a panel discussion at Artklatch comprised of Jen Graves, Matthew Offenbacher, Regina Hackett and moderated by Eric Fredericksen. About 55 folks packed into the back room of Presse for this early morning talk. It was an interesting and spirited conversation.
Almost a year later, artist/Assistant Professor Elise Richman is revisiting the subject by organizing a forum called The Vancouver Problem: A Panel on Visual Art, Identity, Geography, and Discourse. Panelists include Jen Graves, Matthew Offenbacher, Rock Hushka, Liz Magor, Scott Watson and Jonathan Middleton.
Elise says, "They will begin a conversation that I hope will become a broader discussion involving members of the audience who are interested and actively involved in creating the visual arts culture in the Pacific Northwest."
