HERE NOW OR NOWHERE
Here Now or Nowhere is an exhibition of temporary public artworks presented throughout downtown Grande Prairie during the month of January 2009. The exhibition is designed to animate and engage the city through the presentation of a number of free events, objects and experiences. Based on the structure of last year’s exhibition – entitled Artery – which focused on video projections in various storefronts, this year’s iteration has been expanded to include an interactive audio work, a series of newspaper projects in the Herald-Tribune every Friday, a free comic book, and for 3 nights only, a special installation in which a residential house glows with the light of 50 televisions.
Curated by Toronto artist Micah Lexier, this exhibition features an international selections of artists from Grande Prairie, Vancouver, Winnipeg, Toronto, Montreal, London, Ontario, New York, and even as far away at Tipperary Ireland. There are a number of new works made specifically for Here Now or Nowhere including Edward Bader’s comic book, Kim Moodie’s newspaper project and Jan Peacock’s video installation. Kelly Mark is presenting a new version of her famous Glow House series and this exhibition marks the world premier of Adad Hannah’s two new videos.
Please join us on Saturday, January 17th for a Day of Talks and Night of Celebration, where a number of the artists will be speaking about their work. We will conclude the evening with a party. All the events are free to the public and we invite and encourage you to join us.
