Latitude 53’s Incubator series challenges strangers to meet and make art

On now until Aug. 2, the series features up-and-coming artist Hailley Honcharik and veteran artist Robert Iveson, who also happens to be the proud papa to Mayor Don Iveson.

Prior to being teamed up for the Incubator series, the two didn’t know each other but quickly found common ground.

In addition to both being graduates of the University of Manitoba’s art and design programs, Iveson explains.

“Throwing two people together to fabricate something out of nowhere is a provocative and interesting challenge,” he says. “Once we found we shared interest in architecture and industrial design and looked at each other’s previous and recent work, we started building the bones of our show in a thematic way. What we have come up with reflects both of us together, along with the work we have done before.”

Latitude 53 Video Podcast

This week, Incubator features Edmonton artists and designers Hailley Honcharik and Bob Iveson. Working together, the two discovered that they attended the same environmental architecture program, 40 years apart—and how it informs their practices and collaborations.

Come see their work tomorrow at the Patio, 5–9!

Keeping away the rain: our patio is open tomorrow no matter the weather—we’re looking forward to a great night with new art going up for Incubator by Bob Iveson and Hailley Honcharik, jerk chicken from our guest-hosts Red Star, great music and for course all of our best friends in Edmonton. See you there 5–9!

In the mean time, check out the rest of our snapshots from last week on our Facebook page, thanks to photographers Owen Murray and Victoria Diaz.

This Saturday, July 26, as we close out our current exhibitions, we’re giving the gallery over to our friends at Fruit Loop for a party in honour of our building’s history. Until the closure of the previous tenants, The Junction, the building had been a specifically queer-friendly venue for many years, under a few different names. We hope that this event will live up to that legacy!
