Hi. We're grunt gallery. Maybe you have heard of us, we are a Canadian artist-run centre established 1984, with a long history of working with many artists communities in Vancouver and across the world from our facility in the east side of Vancouver. We produce exhibitions, performances and projects in contemporary art as well as websites. Check our site at

Our next project is the group exhibition BLIZZARD: Emerging Northern Artists curated by Beat Nation curator Tania Willard, and featuring 5 artists from the North opening July 5, 2012 . This exhibition was inspired by the impact of the artworks included and the way in which these works reinterpret and translate ideas and culture from the South, making us the outsiders. Dismantling the paternalistic nature of the South's relationship with the North, Our NorthBLIZZARD attempts to create space to view new works that reflect the intimacy of connection to land and culture, but also use humour, shock, and critique to re-frame that understanding of land and culture. Just as Beat Nation has changed the way people look at the artworks by young aboriginal artists, Blizzard will show us what a new generation of indigenous artists in the North are accomplishing. But we need your help.

We need to raise $2500 to help cover the printing cost of our publication. We already have some support but need your help to produce an exciting catalogue to document this important work. So we're turning to our supporters to ask for contributions. As recognition of your support, we're offering first editions of the catalogue, invitations to the artists' reception and other perks from our products and publications. Your contribution will help us cover printing costs for the publication, and further, it will help give us a deeper understanding of artmaking in the North. Thanks!
