For Idea Bank, the audience is invited to contribute their ideas for exhibitions or projects to the collective pool by writing them on a chalkboard. Idea Bank serves as an open source for exhibition ideas. The first project proposal (see above) was written by Robin Vermette.
Paul Butler: The Other Gallery is a web-based, nomadic project directed by Winnipeg artist Paul Butler. Through alternative programming that includes The Collage Party, art fair participation, and collaborative exhibiting, the gallery focuses on exposing under recognized and emerging Canadian talent to an international audience.
Aside from directing the operations of the Other Gallery, Butler (b. 1973) has a varied practice that includes exhibiting his own work. Butler is also the founder of the Upper Trading Post, a non-profit, invitational web-site devoted to the facilitation of artist trading.
