The Window Art Walk (WAW) is a group exhibition that is focused on connecting early career artists with differing communities, and responds to the need for creating exhibition opportunities during the pandemic. WAW takes place on the land of the Coast Salish peoples–Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lō and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations - colonially known as Vancouver, BC - more specifically in East Vancouver between Commercial Dr. and Fraser St.
WAW is an investigation into alternative modalities of exhibition, featuring 23 emerging artists, who have been matched up with 21 of our generous neighbours. The Window Art Walk takes the shape of an art walk only viewable from public space, with artworks being displayed in publicly facing residential windows. A map of the art walk illustrated by Madeline Berger is available on our website and in local businesses (Commercial st. JJBean, Commercial Street Cafe, NADA grocery store, Noor Convenience). There is also a Google maps list accessible through our website as well. :) Hope you enjoy it!
