    Scattered on the outskirts of urban and suburban landscapes are self-storage units, filled with stock, sometimes for small businesses, other times for homes in transition, dorm-room furnishings, Christmas decorations, childhood mementos, forgotten collectibles and valuable antiques. These storage units vary in size, price and accessibility but they all contain items that have been deemed valuable enough to keep but not valuable enough to remain in immediate possession.

    Through photographs and scale models, Gary Warren Hubbs (05) examines the ubiquitous quality of the self-storage unit.

    An essay by Judy Radul entitled Stage Fright: The Theatricality of Performance, was the inspiration for this exhibit bringing together ideas about sculpture and choreography. Featuring work by Geoffrey Farmer (92) and others, it incorporates a range of media: fabric, screen prints, video, and a work that transforms for the duration of the exhibit according to a musical score.

    Geoffrey has a forthcoming retrospective at the Vancouver Art Gallery in 2013 and his work is currently on view at the Istanbul Biennial.

    Jeremy Shaw's (99) exhibition Best Minds Part One (Expanded), recently held at MoMA PS1, was reviewed in the current Canadian Art magazine.

    Writer David Balzer says, "Shaw’s great idea in Best Minds is to slow down his footage in order to emphasize the grace underlying his dancers’ flailing. What results is, simple though it may be, a thing of stunning beauty."

    The 4th Annual Oppenheimer Park Community Art Show, At Our Kitchen Table showcases work by new, emerging and established artists that reflect the vibrant and creative community in and around the Park, including the talents of the many individuals who utilize year round programs offered at Oppenheimer Park. With Food Security initiatives growing throughout the neighbourhood, this year’s theme looks at and celebrates “food”; what it means to our sense of community, the healing and divisive power of the kitchen table, how food can be a creative and powerful medium, and the cultural, traditional, and historical practices associated with food.
