There are still ten days left to check out the multi-media exhibition that looks at prostitution in Vancouver and international sex trafficking.

Flesh Mapping: Vancouver Markets Pacific Women ends December 10 and includes Haruko Okano, Bettina Matzkuhn, Susanne Rutchinski and Krista Tupper exploring and revealing the demand for prostitution in Vancouver as well as international sex trafficking. Live feed and video connects 60 women at the Gallery Gachet installation, with 15 Pacific Rim women meeting at the Vancouver Art Gallery and 100 gathered at the Vancouver Public Library Central Branch.

A description of one of the installations from the organizers:

Flesh Mapping: a Feminist Conversation.

Hosted by Vancouver Rape Relief and Women’s Shelter, 15 feminists organizers from around the Pacific Rim will gather daily for two hours in artful discussion of the conditions of women, the marketing of women, the nature of pacific trade and the connections between prostitution in Vancouver and international trafficking in girls and women. This Pacific Rim information will be linked by two-way live feed to the Vancouver installation at Gallery Gachet displayed on screens at both sites.
