As some of you may know, on June 27 someone broke into New Leaf Editions, the organizers of BIMPE. In turn, the burglar broke a pipe which caused a flood in the building.
However, after these bumps in the road, BIMPE X is moving forward!
At the moment, BIMPE X prints are in the process of framing and preparation for the show in September.
We would like to express our gratitude and appreciation to all of those who participated in the tenth edition of the BIMPE show!
BIMPE will once again open at the Federation Gallery in Vancouver, BC, on September 25, 2018. The opening party will take place on Friday, September 28, 2018.
The exhibition will then stop along Granville Island, Kelowna and Edmonton, Alberta. Learn more about each venue on the menu above.
Sit tight for the next updates!
