Event Details

n a new commission for Offsite, Evann Siebens and Keith Doyle explore how the moving body, whether in solitude or en masse, can become a political act. Incorporating image and sculpture into a multimedia installation, Pedestrian Protest considers themes of gathering and protest along Georgia Street—a connective artery that runs through the unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and səl̓ilwətaɁɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) nations.

 

Siebens collaborated with nearly 50 local dancers, visual artists and activists to create 24 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.

Time
