It takes a VSA village

The exhibition will be three months in the making, beginning with an open call to all 100+ VSAs by coordinators Sacha Baumann and Sarah Gonsalves in November 2015. Half of the VSAs enthusiastically answered, offering their various skills to the many roles and tasks involved in producing an exhibition including artists, preparators, writers, graphic designer, and two djs.

All participating artists were invited to submit up to 5 works for the exhibition, uploading the details and images on a special page of our website. Helmed by VSA Sarah Davis, the curatorial team got to work on making their selections in a series of meetings at Keystone Art Space. On Monday, January 4 the final decisions were made, with a total of 36 artists participating in the show.

Next step: the artists will be dropping off their selected work. The curators will stage the show in Keystone Gallery and then the Prep team will get to work hanging, installing, and lighting the show. It's truly been a group effort.
