Instant Coffee: Perfect
as part of Wrong Gallery Edition #125
Lobby Gallery, Vancouver
presented by Until We Have A Helicopter and i>Babak Golkar
Until We Have A Helicopter and Babak Golkar are pleased to present Wrong Gallery Edition #125, an artwork by Maurizio Cattelan, the famed trickster of the contemporary art world. For the last week of March it will be shown at Lobby Gallery with work by some of the best and brightest Vancouver artists installed inside of it.
With the idea, "now everyone can be a dealer" Cattelan, along with Ali Subotnick and Massimiliano Gioni constructed a miniature version of their "smallest gallery in New York" for collectors to operate in their homes. Artists Babak Golkar and Until We Have A Helicopter (Wes Cameron and Matthew Robertson) will assume the roll of "art dealers" to further test the intent of the miniature gallery. It has been successful thus far in attracting well-known artists to exhibit in the unusual space that Lobby Gallery occupies in the entrance to the Dominion Hotel.
Daily exhibitions will run from March 24-31, with a different artist's work exhibited in the Wrong Gallery each of the eight days. A dealer's assistant will attend the gallery and attempt to sell the exhibited artwork from 1pm-9pm. Refreshments will be available for nightly openings at 6 pm. Lobby Gallery is located in the Dominion Hotel at 210 Abbott St. in Vancouver's Gastown.

The Wrong Gallery is a limited edition 1:6 scale model of New York's smallest exhibition space. The Wrong Gallery is the smallest gallery in the world, consisting of one square meter of exhibition space. Open the door, turn on the light, install a work and become the curator you've always imagined you could be by organizing your own personal gallery program.
The Wrong Gallery was the smallest exhibition space in New York, located at 516A1/2 West 20th Street in Chelsea, opening in 2002 and closing in September 2005. The Wrong Gallery reopened at The Tate Modern in December 2005. The non-profit venue has 1 square meter of exhibition space. The tiny gallery's exhibition program and artistic experimentations are conceptualized and directed by Maurizio Cattelan, Ali Subotnick and Massimiliano Gioni.
