ALL EVENTS TAKE PLACE from the BASS BED @ 69 Pender Street, Vancouver, BC

February 19 - March 13, 2005
Opening February 19
Presented by 69 Pender & Instant Coffee


www.canadianart.ca review


SAT. FEB 19 | OPENING NIGHT | The self dj BASS BED | 9 PM til late Plus box set designs by Andrew Pommier and Tiffany Monk, a stupefying amount of LEDs by ie creative, moody lighting by Miguel da Conceicao and musical accompaniment by DJ Rustic Hut.

FRI. FEB 25 | SLIDES & VIDEOS | 9PM til after hours Part performance. Part happening. Part practice. As always, Instant Coffee creates a public place to practice, where ideas, materials and actions can be explored outside of the isolated studio and away from formal exhibition structures and still supported by a critical discourse or at the very least a BASS BED.

SAT. FEB 26 | Blowout: Intermission vs. Instant Coffee | 9PM til after hours
Intermission is a Vancouver-based collective that supports itself by stealing other peoples brilliant ideas. It has managed to do this for the past six years. Plus some other stuff too. "There's a new collective in town called Instant Coffee. They have a Bass Bed and it's been around (if you know what I'm sayin'). Intermission has a Bass Bed too. It hasn't been anywhere. It is 100% pure bass, pure bed, pure intermission. Feel the difference." -Intermission. "We are better than them." -Instant Coffee.

THURS. MAR 03 | Instant Coffee Book Launch: Success/Recovery | 8PM
Pick up a copy at a cut rate. Contributors include: Darren O'Donnell, Kathleen McLean, Amy Wah, Timothy Comeau, Xandra Eden, RM Vaughan, Allyson Mitchell, Ulysses Castellanos, Dave Dyment, Natalie De Vito, Leah Glushien, Txema, Courtney Fink, Daniel Young, Simone Moir, Lois Andison and Orest Tataryn, Michael Buckland, Craig Buckley, Bill Burns, James Carl, Janis Demkiw, Emily Hogg, Luis Jacob, freethedepartment.ca, Sandy Plotnikoff, Jill Henderson, Fastwčrms, Catherine Stinson, Barry Isenor, Jade Rude, Will Munro, Andrew Harwood, Red76, K8 Hardy, Lucia de L'amor, Kika Thorne, Aaron Brewer. There but for the grace of your/my success/recovery go I.

FRI. MAR 04 | more SLIDES & VIDEOS | 9PM til after hours
More artists responding to the exaggerated division between studio and exhibition practice; more reasons to get 2gether. With a screening by the Splice This! Super 8 Film Festival.

SAT. MAR 05 | STENCIL CUT OUT PARTY | 2PM (an afternoon affair)
Stencils just seem like the right thing to do. Slice and dice. Cut and spray. Take away a set of twenty-two artist designed stencils. Artists include: Acamonchi, Michael Barker, Cecilia Berkovic, Michael Buckland, James Carl, Kelly Coats, Timothy Comeau, Dave Dyment, Fastwčrms, Jill Henderson, Instant Coffee, Luis Jacob, Jinhan Ko, Nestor Kruger, Colleen Langford, Kate Monro, Will Munro, Richard Moszkay, Juan Pablo Garcia, Jade Rude, Jon Sasaki, Kika Thorne, Holly Ward. Artists' Stencils commissioned and produced by Instant Coffee on the occasion of AS A SATELLITE by the America's Society, NY and first launched at Printed Matter.

FRI. MAR 11 | Red76: I've Got Plenty of Nothin' | 9PM til after hours
Red76 (US art collaborative) devote two nights of presentations and projects to finding home wherever you are. On the go, or standing still. www.red76.com. Cardboard house making party for Red76's Little Cities homesteading project Matthew Stadler talks about something. The Portland Vampires make sounds.

SAT. MAR 12 | Red76: I've Got Plenty of Nothin' | 9PM til after hours
Cardboard house making party for Red76's Little Cities homesteading project Matthew Yake spins obscure Eastern European Psych Rock, along with a slideshow of photos taken on Red76's Eastern European tour and Khris Soden discusses things historical.

SUN. MAR 13 | Red76: I've Got Plenty of Nothin' | 11AM (a bit too early)
Meet Red76 for coffee and treats while still all groggy-eyed. Together we'll choose a settlement for our cardboard homes and venture out into the streets of Vancouver to do some homesteading.
