[ISEA2015] Curator Statement: Brian McBay – MARAYA: SISYPHEAN CART

Curator Statement

The project is presented at 221A’s exhibition room located in Chinatown, Vancouver, where it is undergoing intensive neighbourhood gentrification and experiencing crude orientalist marketing campaigns that add to the ongoing crisis of affordability and cultural homogenization.

  • Brian McBay is Executive Director of 221A, a Vancouver, Canada-based non-profit organization that works with artists and designers to research and develop social, cultural and ecological infrastructure.  221a.ca/contributors/brian-mcbay
