Big Draw experimental mapping event
01 October 2016
As part of my project with the Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver I am hosting a mapping event on Saturday at the space I will be working out of during October – the ex-Park Lock Dim Sum restaurant.
The Big Draw – Keg de Souza
Saturday, October 1, 12-3pm
*Off-site: 544 Main Street – entrance on Keefer Street
Australian artist Keg de Souza will be working from a temporary studio in Chinatown as part of the final phase of her eighteen month residency in Vancouver. Developing on from a series of public participatory events examining food culture as a metaphor for urban displacement, for ‘The Big Draw’ the artist will conduct an exploratory food mapping project of the Strathcona neighbourhood by inviting people to become urban cartographers and contribute to a large-scale collaborative map considering local shops, restaurants, urban farms and our interconnected relationships/experiences to them.
Presented as part of ‘The Big Draw’, the world’s largest drawing festival and Culture Days, a Canada-wide celebration that raises the awareness, accessibility, participation and engagement of Canadians in the arts and cultural life of their communities.
