Join Project Space for our Monthly Open Studio presentation of Wir Bauen Eine Neue Stadt (We Build A New City), an exhibition of photographic works based on themes of architecture and urbanism that features artwork by Rebecca Bayer, David Gregory and Ryan Ming. A special edition zine and series of postcards realized for the exhibition will be available.
Fantasma is a series by Rebecca Bayer and David Gregory that explores the potential of space beneath Vancouver’s viaduct infrastructure. These images layer a repeated silk-screened pattern, derived from the negative space surrounding the Dunsmuir Viaduct, over alternately processed photographs developed on rag paper.
Moving on Up is a series of photographs Ryan Ming has taken throughout Vancouver, documenting various forms of high-rise housing developments built in the 1960s and 70s. The images display an interchangeability in the appearance of raw concrete and geometrics that seem indistinguishable from postwar housing estates in Europe.
Rebecca Bayer is an artist and architectural designer whose work concentrates on ways people interact with the materiality of the city.
David Gregory is a photographer who focuses on Vancouver as both a subject and a backdrop, addressing ideas concerning public and private space.
Ryan Ming is a Vancouver-based writer and artist. His photography examines themes of time, urban fragments and landscape documentation, utilizing a cinematographic approach.
