THE FUSE

ANGELA SEA PENAngela as a “Sea Pen” an evocative wearable art piece created by Evelyn Roth

Vancouver Art Gallery November 2015

Vancouver Art Gallery’s (VAG)  eventsthat took place in November of 2015,  highlighted Evelyn Roth’s wearable art and moving sculptures fro the 1970s. The pieces were choreographed and directed by Angela Brown and were a part of the exhibition  ‘Between Object and Action’ – Transforming Media in the 1960’s and 70s – Oct. 30 – Jan.’16 featuring the work of three artists from the 1970′s.

BACKGROUND: During the late 1960s and early 70s, Vancouver’s art scene was electrified by a spirit of experimentation that challenged the traditional boundaries of painting, sculpture and other media. Blurring these categories, artists introduced the beginning of installation and performance art in Vancouver. This show will highlight the work of “4 key practitioners during this period: Kate Craig and Eric Metcalfe (a.k.a. Dr. and Lady Brute), Gathie Falk, Carole Itter and Evelyn Roth.
