THE VIEW FROM HERE

This event is an art show by Vancouver locals presented by the Past Five. All proceeds went to the BC Mental Health Foundation. 

 

We arrived at MIA at 11:00pm and were lead by a strip of yellow lights down some stairs to pay cover. After tossing our tens we worked through a small maze to the low ceilinged club. The event was winding down with around twenty people milling around. Artists had little nooks which they turned into immersive experiences of their art.

The crowd was decked out in chains, baggy pants, and colourful sweaters. Many of the attendees were either artists or friends of the artists. Aided by some $5 drinks, the conversations about art flowed freely–the vibe was friendly and open. There were even rumours that Cole Spouse stopped in for a minute, which confirms that the show was definitely hip. Overall, we definitely recommend future events hosted by the Past Five.
