Vancouver International Centre for Contemporary Asian Art

 

Centre A’s 20th Anniversary Fundraiser

April 11 2019, 7-11pm

Imperial Vancouver

Tickets: $40- $50

Centre A was founded twenty years ago to support the creation and appreciation of contemporary Asian art. As we celebrate our anniversary, we continue to champion multidisciplinary practice and showcase the range of artistic disciplines that Asian artists are active in. With our new space at 268 at Keefer Street, we are reconceptualizing what a public gallery can be—made possible only with your support. Please join us as we present Off Keefer, a cabaret-style fundraiser featuring live local performance artists that are breaking stereotypes and shaking up the visual arts world. It will be an evening of celebrating and reimagining the experiences and expression of Asian diasporic communities within the arts.
