For Capture 2018, Kent Lins in conjunction with Sally Buck, exhibited his series Sweet Dense City in Van Galleries, one of two rental vans. The exhibition was in response to Vancouver BC being a city of unhinged property values and taxes. Where emerging and unrepresented artists have a difficult task of finding galleries to show their work. The rented vans were parked at various locations and times, throughout Vancouver, which will be posted online. See @vangalleries on Instagram, @vangalleries on Twitter, and @vangalleries on facebook.
Cranes insist, swinging across the cityscape, densifying. Candy-wrappered commodities oppress. The glorious condo. A sweet windowscape, quivering with false pretenses. Underneath lay the bitter renovictions, and the hopelessly excluded.
