Admission Fee

This Admission Fee Performance was held during the opening of the Nothing Without Us About Us Show at Gallery Gachet. This show explored accessibility issues to the Vancouver Art Gallery. I believe entrance to public museums and art galleries should be free and/or by donations. Art is a means of transmitting and creating knowledge. Charging a substantial fee for entrance creates a social divide unacceptable in a democratic society.

For this performance I recreated the Vancouver Art Gallery sales receipts and price however I added a number of winter discounts that everyone would qualify for unless they were dead. Most people were surprised at first but quickly accepted the discounts.
