FUSE: Art/Music/Performance
FRIDAY MARCH 16, 8pm-12am

   BUY TICKETS      FUSE Admission: $29 General | $15 Members | Limited Tickets available at the door.

With FUSE, the Vancouver Art Gallery transforms into the city’s most exciting place for art, music and live performance. Since its inception in 2005, thousands of visitors have converged at the Gallery to experience innovative and experimental ways of engaging with art. Performances, music and surprises—in the gallery spaces and through the building—make FUSE Vancouver’s favourite art party. FUSE also provides a unique opportunity for visitors to explore the exhibitions currently on view at the Gallery, as well as a place to spend time with friends in the FUSE lounges.

In dialogue with the Vancouver Art Gallery’s spring exhibition season, FUSE: Transcendence/Destruction traverses the heights and depths of human experience through absurd, mundane and political gestures. Featuring all shades of performance—from prop comedy to experimental theatre to music and animation, and even an artist bar—the evening’s happenings will distort and synthesize the boundary between tradition and futurity. FUSE: Transcendence/Destruction will foster wild abandon and speculative contemplation in the same breath, asking us to find ourselves in the richness of the space between.

FUSE: Transcendence/Destruction is curated by Tarah Hogue, Senior Curatorial Fellow of Indigenous Art and cheyanne turions, Director of Education and Public Programs with production support by Erika Lim and the entire staff of the Vancouver Art Gallery. Special thanks also to Amy Kazymerchyk.

Starting in 2018, in order to continue to deliver new and innovative programming, FUSE events will become a paid event for all attendees. As valued supporters of the Gallery, Members will continue to have preferential access with a 50% discount. Non-member guests must purchase a ticket at full price.
