This weekend an amazing event is taking place and INTERNeX is going! I’m talking about Art Vancouver, a prestigious art fair that “brings the international art world together”. The show is going on from the big opening night on Thursday until Sunday evening. We picked Saturday as our day to go with lots of exhibitors talking about one of their art pieces, their journey as an artist and more, the chance to sign up for hands-on art classes, an interesting panel talk about AI Art and an Art Masters painting competition at the end of the day. At the competition the artists will be given a theme and their task is to express this within one hour, using a mystery box of supplies. We as the audience vote for the winner! 😉 I’m sure we’re going to have an amazing time with lots to learn and take in. I’m excited, are you? 🙂
If you want to warm up for this day of fun on Saturday I recommend you go to the Art Gallery on Friday where you have free entrance between 4pm and 8pm, only every first Friday of the month, so this is your chance if you love art and want to save a buck. 😉 Current Exhibitions include ‘The Children have to hear another story: Alanis Obomsawin’. Alanis is an activist and filmmaker born into a dark period of Indigenous history. Despite this, she managed to access public platforms and tell Indigenous stories. Another Exhibition is ‘Shary Boyle: Outside the Palace of Me’ which reflects on “contemporary constructions of self through language of costume, character, set design and stage effects, Byole explores how we see each other and how we see ourselves.” Those are just two of the five exhibitions that are taking place at the Gallery right now. I don’t want to spoil too much, so why don’t you take a look yourself?
More into sports than into art? How about grabbing your buddy and going to a sports bar to watch an Ice Hockey game? The Stanley Cup Playoffs are happening at the moment and it’s a major event since, you know, it’s Canada’s National sport. 😉 There’s lots of good sports bars around that offer delicious pub food, cold drinks and big flat screen TV’s showing the game. I’m sure if a Canadian team is playing you’ll feel like you’re in the stadium. 😉 Afterwards you could go out and explore Vancouver’s Night Life!
Want to avoid conversations about Ice Hockey with others at the bar because you don’t know enough about it? Don’t worry we’ve got you covered, just check out our blog post about the history and basics of the Stanley Cup and in no time you’ll be able to make conversation with one of the locals at the bar: https://internexcanada.wordpress.com/2023/04/26/canadian-knowledge-test-101-the-stanley-cup/
I hope you have an amazing weekend and can report lots of fun things at next weeks Pub Night!
