    Gallery Fukai presents Present Imperfect, Future Tense, an exhibition by Catherine Lavelle (11), Sarah Stein (11) and Kelly Gough (10).

    The dialogue created by the three artists in Present Imperfect, Future Tense questions the choices we make. Attempting to mediate the uncertainties of a complex present, they allegorically reference environmental, social, and economic considerations. There are no answers here, but an unsettling openness—the unknown space ahead is where choice is leading us.

The interactive exhibit was designed by Emily Carr alumni Toby Barratt (96), Pamela Goddard (98), and Nik Rust (96), of Propellor Design, and links Bhangra music and dance with issues of identity, politics, diaspora and life in Vancouver.
