No Windows, on view at Satellite Gallery from November 27, 2010 to January 23, 2011, is the result of a unique collaboration between the departments of Anthropology, Art History and Curatorial Studies at the University of British Columbia, as graduate students in each of these programs have joined forces to curate this new and exciting exhibition.
No Windows presents artworks by local and national artists Rhonda Weppler + Trevor Mahovsky, Adad Hannah, Jamie Drouin, and Zoe Tissandier. In their work, the artists explore the structures that underlie gallery and museum practices, and challenge visitors’ ideas about them as agents in the creation, mediation, and reception of art.
Satellite Gallery is a Michael O’Brian Family Foundation project with partners the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery and the Museum of Anthropology at UBC, and Presentation House Gallery.
