The Edmonton Journal was out at In/stall/ed on Saturday:
Empty parking lots and concrete spaces were transformed into art installations in Edmonton’s McCauley neighbourhood Saturday.
In the middle of the Sacred Heart Centre parking lot at 96 Street and 108 Avenue, 81-year-old Nick Shostak Sr. and his granddaughter Amy set up a coffee table, rug, some books and chairs. Shostak Sr. sat back in his burgundy recliner and told the audience stories of a youth filled with failed get-rich-quick schemes involving unsold umbrella hats and cafeteria trays.
Shostak’s performance was part of a free outdoor art show sponsored by the McCauley community revitalization project, where artists explored the divide between public and private life.
The article also includes a few comments from Kelta Coomber here at the gallery, as well as a little more on other projects in case you missed.
Of course, we’re still in the thick of it: come see our untitled project with Jasper Place High School students in the windows of the Artery tonight!
