In honour of Canada's 150 celebrations, six Niagara artists are creating and presenting a multimedia collective art installation. The installation will reflect distinct interpretations of Niagara's 150th commemoration. Their works will illustrate, challenge, and celebrate the meaning of what Canada means to people living in or visiting Niagara.
The resulting collaborative work will be installed at Niagara Region headquarters between January and February 2018. A public launch is scheduled for March 2018. It will serve as a lasting legacy of the Canada 150 celebrations.
Each artist focused on two (or more) demographic selections:
The artists took part in events, and met new people who they interviewed and interacted with. These interactions have been turned into creative pieces that will be installed in the foyer of Campbell East. Projections with sound and imagery will complement the installations.
Three major art pieces, grounded by one large native drum, will be on the north wall of the public walkway of Campbell East. Projectors and audio equipment will be on the south wall, together with still imagery and audio samples.
This project is funded in part by the Government of Canada. Ce projet est financé en partie par le gouvernement du Canada.
