Mobile Barnacle City Live/Work Studio is part of Ten Different Things. Curated by Kate Armstrong, the series is a collaboration between CityStudio Vancouver, and Living Labs at Emily Carr University of Art + Design, and supported by the City of Vancouver Public Art Program. It features new commissions launching Spring 2018 in Vancouver where artists were invited to create new works in the spirit of free inquiry at the intersection of public art, community engagement, and civic process. Projects are temporary and take a variety of forms—events, installations, residencies, interventions, workshops—and provoke new visions of art and civic life. How can we create structures, processes or dynamics to produce new ways of living in, interacting with, or occupying the city? Where are the intersections in public life where artists can produce alternate outcomes?
Artists: Colleen Brown, Instant Coffee, Laiwan, Khan Lee, Holly Schmidt, Henry Tsang, Janet Wang, Casey Wei, Jen Weih, and Denise Holland and Pongsakorn Yananissorn.
