Donato Mancini Resources (Cenotaph)

Malaspina Printmakers is commissioning new works by Vancouver writer and interdisciplinary artist Donato Mancini, as a special contribution to the upcoming Institutions by Artists project. In the form of four silkscreen poster multiples, the new work draws from a set of lists of artist run spaces and initiatives, cafés, and bookstores that formed, flourished and disappeared between the 1970s and the present day. Based on the artist’s research into these defunct establishments, Mancini’s work reveals the relationship between the fugitive presence of artistic practice as it relates to the accelerated pace of urban development in this city.

Produced with the support of the BC Arts Council’s Innovations program.
