Thursday June 14
7:00pm @ Guelph Street Community Garden
Join the Mount Hope Breithaupt Park Neighbourhood Association at the Guelph Street Garden as we discuss public and temporary art with St Marie φ Walker, the creators behind the Community Thoughts art project. St Marie φ Walker (Denise St. Marie & Timothy Walker) are artist-researchers investigating the applied nature of perception, belief, illusion and value. Their interdisciplinary practice focuses on the structure of environmental spaces, participatory social experiences, latent economies, the prosthetic quality of objects, critical poetic thinking, kinetic technologies, the nature of language and dialogue. Their work is typically informed by philosophy, and psychology. St Marie φ Walker’s process of creation is an intersection of conceptualism, interactive social engagement and iterative creation.
So grab a bite from Ambrosia Pastry’s Cool Treats, Truck Eats, and stop by to talk about what public art could mean for our neighbourhood. Bring a blanket or chair to sit on.
If you want to learn more about the Community Thoughts project, join Denise & Tim for a tour as part of CAFKA 2018.
