The Vancouver Art Gallery's outdoor Offsite location is presenting a new commission by Evann Siebens + Keith Doyle titled Pedestrian Protest.
The multimedia installation--which starts this Friday (April 9) and runs through October 11--explores how the moving body can become a political act.
"Siebens collaborated with more than 20 local dancers, visual artists, and activists," reads the event info, "to create media performances that reference a historical or recent protest. Each collaborator’s singular artistic voice combines with the others in a chorus of protest and gathering that maps our changing city.
"Doyle responds to this mapping through his sculptural intervention, referring to the precarious and temporary conditions of Vancouver’s constantly changing built environment."
Offsite is located at 1100 West Georgia Street, between Thurlow and Bute Streets, just west of the Shangri–La Hotel.
Pedestrian Protest is organized by the VAG on behalf of the City of Vancouver’s Public Art Program and curated by Diana Freundl. You can learn more about it here.
