As the Vancouver Park Board announces plans to partially reopen Oppenheimer Park in June, we invite you to (re)visit "Displacement in Public Green Spaces," an online conversation hosted in May 2020 by Vines Art Festival with jaye simpson, Siobhan Barker, Ga'axstsalas Cheryle Williams (gunargie o'sullivan) and Jane Shi. The transcript is published in The 13th Annual Oppenheimer Park Community Art Show (the art book). Contact
A community partnership between Oppenheimer Park/Carnegie Community Centre Association and Gallery Gachet, this annual show began in 2008 in anticipation of changes, challenges, and loss in a pre-Olympic city. As the park has been enclosed since March, for 2020 we invited artists to engage thematically with ongoing processes of placement and displacement. Context is provided with open letters and the transcript of "Displacement in Public Green Spaces," an online conversation hosted in May by Vines Art Festival, who we welcome this year as co-publisher.
Imagined as a community artists' book, there are contributions from: Adrienne Macallum, Bonnie Low, Brian Humchitt, Rosa Chan, Carol Larson, Cassandra “Tina” Eastman, Diane Wood, DTES Graffiti Artists, Bruce Walther, Gilles Cyrenne, Edgar Alan Rossetti, Gladys Lee, Eva Cho, Grace Chan, Jim Dewar, James Pau, Lily Huo, Marko, May Li, Michael Edward Nardachioni, Phoenix Winter, Robyn Livingstone, Priscillia Mays, Rudolf Penner, Serena Guan, Shannon Johnson, Stanley M Paul, Wendy Stewart, TJ Felix, Siobhan Barker, Ga’axstsalas Cheryle Williams (gunargie o’sullivan), Jane Shi, jaye simpson, Adriana Contreras Correal, Les Nelson, Lorelei Hawkins, and Manuel Axel Strain.
Designed by Jane Harms, the art book will be distributed in January. Copies will be shared throughout the community and available on a sliding scale/by donation through Gallery Gachet.

We conclude this calendar year by welcoming The 13th Annual Oppenheimer Park Community Art Show. The tradition continues as a publication featuring the artwork and insight of 40 artists and community leaders connected to or displaced from Oppenheimer Park, the green space known as Lek’lekí, the Powell Street Grounds, Paureu g*i, the backyard of the Downtown Eastside - on the unceded lands of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and sə̓lilwətaɁɬ / se̓lí̓lwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) peoples.

Vancouver Coastal Health says that more than two dozen employees at United Poultry Company Ltd. have tested positive for the virus. The processing plant is located at 534 East Cordova, in the Downtown Eastside.
“I knew the project was coming to an end when I began photographing things with only one exposure ag*in,” the artist says. “I think I was intuitively, through my photo-taking process, healing from the experience, and as I became more healed, my photos once ag*in returned to single exposures.”
For those facing the overdose crisis, the pandemic presents a second public health emergency, raising doubly-urgent questions about access to housing, community and isolation, safe supply, harm reduction, income, health care, and representation.

This exhibition is part of the 2020 Capture Photography Festival Selected Exhibition Program. The project is supported by a Tricera Printing Grant, the 2019 Lacey Prize, and Gallery Gachet's funders.

Originally scheduled to open today at Gallery Gachet, A Room for the Pain is a series of photographs by artist Jackie Dives created soon after the death of her father to an accidental drug overdose. While Dives’ documentary photography has been published internationally for newspapers, magazines, and websites, A Room for the Pain requires the space of an art gallery to emphasize the detail and effect of each c-print and situate the series beyond journalism, specifically with respect to the Downtown Eastside. Read about this important photography series in an article by Ellyn Kail for Feature Shoot:
