I am once again working with the Victoria Arts Council during August!
From the VAC website:
“Reclaim focuses on the use of upcycling art and/or construction materials in the creation of new work for public spaces. During the course of the month-long program, Koh –an experienced public artist– will lead the cohort of emerging artists as they work together to create a work of public art for temporary display.
Rooted in professional development, peer-to-peer engagement and exploration, with the goal of demystifying the realm of public art (from concept to proposal to presentation), Reclaim acts as a public forum as well as a studio. “
To me this is the perfect follow up to Auricals. It will get me thinking ‘bigger’ and it will be a continuation of my use of found/discarded materials.
Other artists I am excited to be working with are David Martinello, Laveen Gammie, Mike Glendale and Carolyn Yardley.
For more about RECLAIM and the artists involved, Victoria Arts Council
Reclaim is funded by STEPS Public Art, with further support from the City of Victoria’s My Great Neighbourhood Grant.
The Auricals catalogue is now available.
Designed by Leah McInnis, this 50 page 6″x6″ catalogue consists of photos of the exhibit, text by Kegan McFadden and Regan Rasmussen and poetry by Rhonda Gantz. To order please fill in this form.
