Gendai Vectors: Infections and Infestations (1974-2012) closing events will include the launch of two new print editions by Yam Lau with Gendai, along with storytelling and conversations related to Art Metropole's early history and relationship to the 1974 issue of FILE Megazine (vol. 2, no. 5, February 1974), "Annual Artists' Directory Issue".

The history of these organizations, the artists and the movements with which they interacted will be discussed by curators Fern Bayer and Peggy Gale, followed by a conversation with artist and curator, Yam Lau, Gendai Gallery Programme Director, Yan Wu and Art Metropole's Executive Director, Corinn Gerber. Their discussion will contextualize the Gendai Vectors program's Mobile Unit implementation and archive activation inaugurated at Art Metropole on February 15, 2012.

Fern Bayer is the General Idea archivist, a contemporary art historian, curator and an Art Metropole Lifetime Member. Peggy Gale is one of the earliest members of the Art Metropole staff, and has functioned on the organization's Board of Directors as President, is a Lifetime Member and is a writer, curator and editor.
