    • Wil Aballe is the founder and director of Wil Aballe Art Projects, or WAAP, Vancouver, Canada. Founded in 2013,  WAAP exhibits an emerging and established array of internationally-renowned artists, but most notably, the younger generation of Vancouver art practitioners. The program is comprised of a series of “art projects”, interdisciplinary, concept oriented and space-based exhibitions in a variety of media including sculpture, video, sound, painting, printmaking, photography and performance. Its editions program feature contributions by the brightest Canadian artists internationally and are coveted by collectors. During its inaugural 2 years, WAAP was located in a live-work studio in Vancouver’s Mount Pleasant and was conceived to be both a private and public art viewing experience. The gallery held solo, duo and curated group exhibitions, as well as site-specific pop up shows in venues such as the Burrard Arts Foundation, Gallery 295 and South Creek Landing. It also hosts performances and lectures several times a year.
