Join guest curator David MacWilliam for a live virtual tour of Griffin Art Projects' current exhibition NOW BULLETIN Artworks, Letters and Printed Matter from the Garry Neill Kennedy Collection 1968 – 2019.
Now Bulletin is an exhibition, residency series, public art project and public program on the archive, collection and works of eminent Vancouver artist and former NSCAD president, Garry Neill Kennedy. Reflecting on hospitality, history, memory and the archive in relation to Kennedy and his long history at NSCAD, this project also invites previous NSCAD graduates to collaboratively explore this history through Canadian and international residencies, public programs and a publication.
Currently based in Vancouver, British Columbia, David MacWilliam is an educator, independent curator and visual artist whose practice is primarily concerned with the societal role of art, the relationships between forms and colour, and painting as labour. MacWilliam completed his BFA at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, and his MA in Visual Arts at the University of the Arts, London. As Professor Emeritus of the Audain Faculty of Art, MacWilliam taught at Emily Carr University of Art + Design for twenty nine years. His work has been exhibited extensively in Canada and occasionally in Europe.

Griffin Art Projects is a non-profit art residency and gallery located in North Vancouver devoted to supporting artists in the production of new work through its residency program, and in creating new research on contemporary Canadian and international art, artists and art collections from around the world in its exhibition program. Griffin Art Projects is a non-collecting institution that has quickly become a vibrant contributor to the North Vancouver cultural landscape and visual art practices in the region through its exhibitions, residency and public programs. Griffin Art Projects' exhibitions and events are always free and open to all to attend. Established in 2015, Griffin Art Projects was founded by Brigitte and Henning Freybe who began collecting art in the early 1970s. Griffin Art Projects considers the methodologies, thematics and narratives that shape and direct both visual culture and creative work, and collecting practices. In addition, Griffin Art Projects supports and develops solo and group projects and thematic exhibitions of works, collaborating with established cultural producers, guest curators, artists, writers and art educators in the region, nationally and locally to also produce exhibitions, public programs and publications on contemporary art in the region.
