“It was so good at the preview, I went back a second time the next night.”

“It’s a one-of-a-kind exhibition by artistic director Paul Wong.”

“It’s easy to get pleasantly lost wandering from one installation to another.”

Thru The Trapdoor: Paul Wong’s Journey Through Art, Kevin Griffin, Vancouver Sun, April 24, 2014 


“Walking ‘Thru The Trapdoor’ one will find themselves in the best trap they can ask for – a trap of mind blowing art that makes On Main Gallery in Vancouver legendary.”

“This old warehouse storage space becomes a mini maze with rebellious, beautiful, and even haunting pieces of art.”

“It ran from April 23rd to the 26th, and was a spectacular event that will likely go down in local history for its exciting, immersive sprawl.”

“With the help of his gang at On Main Gallery, Wong curated a block-buster of an art show that felt more like an illicit warehouse party than it did a white cube.”

“All in all, we were surprised and delighted by Paul’s subterranean spectacle, and count ourselves lucky to have been able to be a part of such an endeavour.”

“The lockers remained, but the upper floor was taken over by the Video In / VIVO Media Arts Centre which, at the urging of co-founding video artist Paul Wong, leased the entire building. With stable premises after three moves, the centre quickly grew to help develop and sustain Vancouver’s role as an international video-arts centre.”
