Hadley + Maxwell: Survival Kit

Canadian Photographic Portfolio Society

New edition launch and 20th anniversary survey

18 November to 3 December 2006

Opening Reception: 17 November 6 to 9 p.m.

Belkin Satellite, 555 Hamilton Street, Vancouver

The Belkin Satellite is pleased to host the Canadian Photographic Portfolio Society’s launch of its latest edition, Survival Kit, by Vancouver-based artist duo Hadley + Maxwell. Based on the answer that ten Vancouver arts professionals gave to the question “If you were to be banished to a desert island, by yourself, for the rest of your living days, what one object would you choose to take with you?” Survival Kit contains photographs of the resulting selection of items, custom fitted with individual flotation devices by Hadley + Maxwell. Each portfolio of ten images is housed in a custom–modified archival flotation container. The work has been produced in an edition of ten, with a launch price of $4,000.

Hadley + Maxwell have exhibited and published their collaborative work across Canada and internationally, most recently at the Contemporary Art Gallery in Vancouver and Western Bridge in Seattle. In 2005 they received a VIVA award, and in 2006–7 will be participating in the international residency program at the Künstlerhaus Bethanien in Berlin. Survival Kit is their latest project involving collaborative processes with individuals and communities.

The Canadian Photographic Portfolio Society (CPPS) publishes limited edition photographic portfolios of work by Canadian artists. Formed in 1986, the Society’s aim is to support the development of Canadian photographic art and raise its international profile. Selections from past CPPS editions by Raymonde April, David Askevold, Stan Douglas, Angela Grauerholz, David Hoffos, Geoffrey James, Liz Magor, Cheryl Sourkes, and Ian Wallace are included in the exhibition.
