On November 10, Open Space presents For Everyone A Fountain, a new work by Victoria-based artist Robert Youds. Architectural in its initial demeanor, Youds’ latest work offers an experiential, immersive adventure at the intersection of painting, sculpture, light, sound, time, and algorithm.
For Everyone A Fountain is the fifth installation in an ongoing series by Youds. A previous iteration of the series, For Everyone A Sunset, was shown at the Vancouver Art Gallery’s Offsite in 2015. Youds explores the division between objects and image associations of objects, with the title referring to architect Moshe Safdie’s utopian urban planning book, For Everyone a Garden.
Meet Robert Youds at the opening reception, which will be held on Friday, November 17 at 7:00 p.m. This will be followed by an artist talk on Saturday, November 18 at 2:00 p.m.
