On Friday, November 17, 2017 at 7:00pm, join Open Space for the public reception of For Everyone a Fountain, a new work by Victoria-based artist Robert Youds. Architectural in its initial demeanor, Youds’ latest work offers an experiential, immersive adventure at the intersection of painting, sculpture, light, sound, time, and algorithm.
For Everyone a Fountain is the fifth installation in an ongoing series by Youds. A previous iteration of the series, For Everyone a Sunset, was shown at the Vancouver Art Gallery’s Offsite in 2015. Youds explores the division between objects and image associations of objects, with the title referring to architect Moshe Safdie’s utopian urban planning book, For Everyone a Garden.
The reception will be followed by an artist talk on Saturday, November 18 at 2:00 p.m. For Everyone a Fountain runs from Nov 10-Dec 16, 2017. Visit Open Space during our public hours: Tues-Sat, 12:00pm-5:00pm. For more about the exhibition, visit our website: http://openspace.ca/programming/everyone-fountain
