Date: December 7 – 9, 2011
Location: Roundhouse Community Centre
YVR is a portrait of a city that refuses to sit still. The project will feature an installation developed through community workshops that is a miniature paper replica of the city, suspended five feet off the floor. Audience members will be able to stroll through Vancouver’s neighbourhoods like giants and contribute to the work by adding to its stories, images, and buildings over the course of the ten day presentation period. The result, a hybrid between media installation, living archive and paper play, will be a reflection of—and on—Vancouver’s unique history as a city at the interstice between cultures, continents and conditions.
Opening Tuesday December 6th
Reception: 7pm Snacks and refreshments served
Artist Talk: 7:30 Hildi Westerkamp
Open 1pm – 9:30 pm, Wed Dec 7 – Fri Dec 9. Free, suitable for all ages. Children welcome.
With support from the City of Vancouver’s 125th Anniversary Grants Program and the participation of the Government of Canada.
