Mouthfeel, presented by Big Rock Candy Mountain, features sticky, pliable, and oral forms that center on the mouth as a means of aesthetic perception and production. The exhibition opens on Halloween night, alongside the launch of Q.A. CHEW, a large edition of chewing gum developed with students from Queen Alexandra Elementary School.
Q.A. CHEW is a commission of the City of Vancouver Public Art Program as part of Big Rock Candy Mountain, a multi phased project initiated by Hannah Jickling and Helen Reed. Big Rock Candy Mountain is a flavour incubator and taste-making think-tank produced by Other Sights for Artists’ Projects.
