Ten Different Things invites artists to create new works in the spirit of free inquiry at the intersection of public art, community engagement, and civic process. Projects should be temporary and can take a variety of forms—events, installations, residencies, interventions—but should explore conditions of how culture is experienced in Vancouver or provoke new visions of art and civic life.
This initiative invites ten critically-engaged artists to investigate the role of culture as a critical ingredient in the construct and vitality of the contemporary city. What propositions, provocations, concepts or visions do artists have for creating a public sphere that promotes cultural life? How can we create structures, processes or dynamics to produce new ways of living, working, interacting with, or occupying the city? Where are the intersections in public life where artists can produce alternate outcomes?
Ten projects will be realized throughout 2017-2018. Curated by Kate Armstrong, the series is a collaboration between the City of Vancouver Public Art Program, CityStudio, and Living Labs at Emily Carr University of Art + Design.
