Welcome. We are seriously so glad you are here.
In 1967, the editors of a Toronto arts publication decided they wanted a report on the Vancouver arts scene. Naturally, they tapped an American for the job. Philip Leider, editor of Artforum, published his report in artscanada under the blunt title, “Vancouver: Scene with No Scene.” It contained many findings but no discoveries: Vancouver lacked a network of commercial galleries, far-sighted dealers, and collectors to support emerging artists. It was fundamentally regional in outlook. It was poor. There was also a deadly void where art criticism should have been, meaning that stuff happened and was promptly forgotten. But it wasn’t all bad news: comparing Vancouver to other “secondary” arts cities like D.C., Los Angeles or San Francisco, Leider concluded that despite the absence of a “scene,” Vancouver had a host of talented artists, committed art teachers, and a few ambitious figures driving the action (in particular, writer-curator Doris Shadbolt, artist-teacher Roy Kiyooka, and Alvin Balkind, who was chief curator at the Vancouver Art Gallery).
Sound familiar, Pittsburgh?
