Dadabase was established in 2002 in Vancouver, British Columbia as an on going art project by two Vancouver based artists Mo Salemy and Ignacio Corral who used the idea of a business as the medium for their art practice.
A big part of DADABASE activities was the operation of XENO Gallery inside the shop.
In 2006, XENO gallery was renamed and relaunched as DADABASE and hosted exhibitions by A.S. Dhillon, Justin B. Williams, Chris Smith, Marek Bula, Hannah Metz, Ben Frey, Victoria Singh, Johann Groebner and The Dark.
Aafter the closure of DADABASE in its former location at 183 East Brodway on September 4th, 2008, DADABASE ONLINE GALLERY was launched as an exclusive vhiecle for the sales and marketing of emerging visual arts of Vancouver and New York.
Dadabase has consistently grown to include more ideas, more people and more projects. Dadabase has been called by The Globe and Mail, the best and the smallest art venue in Vancouver. It has been the subject of an extensive program in July 2004 by CTV network and it has been subject of numerous other coverage in print, web and television media.
