WHAT ARE TAS POP UPS?

TAS Pop ups are temporary exhibitions of local emerging artists that take place in different locations and areas of Vancouver, with the aim of bringing art to the people to experience in an accessible and inviting way. Each pop up showcases the work of different artists, some are TAS Artists, and others are honorary guests. TAS selects the artists for each pop up depending on the curatorial theme of the show, presenting the idea to the artists who then create new work or show previous artworks that align with the curation. The curatorial underpinning hopes to be an accessible entry point for those interested in art but who find its presentation to be too pretentious or intimidating, presenting themes that are relatable and allowing the voice of the artist to be the front and center of the exhibition.
