Upcoming Event: WNDW gallery- TJ McLachlan: Easy for Me

Join us at 2262 Cambridge St for the opening of WNDW gallery’s first show- TJ McLachlan: Easy For Me on October 24th from 2-4pm.

T.J. McLachlan is an artist focused on maintaining a material practice that is tempered by a strong theoretical background. Having graduated from Emily Carr University in 2015, majoring in Critical and Cultural Practices, he is now a MFA candidate at the University of Alberta. His research focuses on meaning-making processes, looking to find connections among disparate fields such as rhetoric, cultural theory, and the study of perception. This exploration informs his sculptural practice, which concentrates on the viewer’s experience in front of the art object, intending to highlight the production of knowledge. These post-structuralist ambitions parallel T.J.’s character, balancing idealism and materialism while being slightly too earnest.

WNDW is an itinerant gallery space that inhabits residential windows. Funded by both the Vancouver Foundation and the City of Vancouver’s Community Arts Grants, the project aims to bring contemporary art out of self-selecting high culture areas placing it directly into the quotidian life of the residential street. It is also a capacity building project- supporting Vancouver’s emerging artists by providing them with an innovative space to display their work as well as supporting them financially through the payment of artist fees.

WNDW is administered through the Park Board’s Fieldhouse Studio Residency program at Burrard View Park, where project director Lexie Owen is currently artist-in-residence.
