"Tour de 4 preparations"
Deborah Fong, Jeanette Reinhardt, Annastacia McDonald, Carol Hackett and Paul Wong, "Tour de 4 preparations," 1980.
Mainstreeters: Taking Advantage, 1972-1982 looks at the activities of a gang of socially engaged artists who came of age on Vancouver’s Main Street – once the dividing line between the city’s middle-class west side and multicultural working-class east side. This project considers how Kenneth Fletcher, Deborah Fong, Carol Hackett, Marlene MacGregor, Annastacia McDonald, Charles Rea, Jeanette Reinhardt and Paul Wong explored the new medium of video, drawing from glam, punk and the gay scene. Curated by Allison Collins and Michael Turner as a co-production of grunt gallery and Presentation House Gallery, it includes a website and video documentary as well as storefront video screenings.
