The Contemporary Art Gallery is currently showing the Clip/Stamp/Fold exhibit until November 9, 2008. The concept originated with architectural theorist Beatriz Colomina at Princeton University's School of Architecture and is based on the reappraisal of 'little' architectural magazines from the 1960's-1970's. As the show has travelled to Montreal, Germany and London, effort has been made to build exhibits out of local magazine collections, thus maintaining the general idea, but varying the specifics. If you haven't seen the show, it's well worth a visit, both for the broader themes of the exhibit as well as the excellent local content, co-curated in Vancouver by Adele Weder.

In addition to the exhibit there are a number of talks scheduled in the coming weeks that should prove worthwhile:

October 2, 7pm: Peeroj Thakre, Response. CAG, 555 Nelson St.

October 14, 7pm: Beatriz Colomina, Curator's Talk. C300 Theatre, UBC at Robson Square, 800 Robson St.

October 15 7pm: Ian Chodikoff, Bo Helliwell, Sherry McKay, Panel Discussion. Inform Interiors, 50 Water St.

October 30, 7pm: Trevor Boddy, Response. CAG, 555 Nelson St.
