The Young Asian Canadian Twin Artists Collective stems from the uniqueness of Yactac culture, one that is infused with coincidences, cohesive thinking, *magic, and irony. Their goal is to channel those unique elements into creation/formation/discussion of contemporary art.
Yactac as a collective is dedicated to the necessities of art flow. To promote, support, and encourage the creation of art daily; as they believe in the innate creative qualities of art-making within us all. In that, Yactac practices art as a lifestyle where art and life become identical.
Yactac will serve as the jump base for innovative ideas and approaches to penetrate contemporary culture through spontaneous interventions of every size. They hope to throw shows, host dance parties, and have interactive live events and projects.
In conjunction with the in-house gallery space, the Yactac Residency Program invites artists from around the world to live, make work, and exhibit in Vancouver.
A “Final Exhibition” at Yactac Gallery is required at the end of the term.
Living space with single bed and dresser. No overnight guests, no pets.
