WRECK CITY: An Epilogue for 809 is a community-based art experiment transforming 9 houses, 3 garages, and a greenhouse scheduled for demolition into temporary art, installation, and performance spaces.
The biggest project of its type in the history of Calgary (perhaps even all of Canada), Eight Artist-Curators have invited 100+ Artists, Musicians, and Performers to participate. Artist participants will be free to radically alter the architecture of entire houses, re-shaping the homes using materials from the houses themselves, without need for repair at the end of the project. This newly formed community of artists intends to produce a neighbourhood of magical and critically-engaging spaces, made possible only by the freedom of working inside houses soon to be destroyed.
WRECK CITY will be open to the public from APRIL 19 – 27, 2013. WRECK CITY is located between 621 and 823 5th Ave NW Calgary
This blog was created to share my belief that the art making process can be a vehicle for empowerment.
I am living proof.
