This August 27 from 11am to 5pm, Latitude 53 ventures outside the gallery for In/stall/ed, a free celebration of public art in the McCauley community. Created and produced by Latitude 53, In/stall/ed features seventeen site-specific installations from national and international artists that explore the public-private divide. Repurposing parking stalls throughout the McCauley neighbourhood as transient sites for the exhibition of public art, the project encourages Edmonton's communities to experience art in urban contexts outside the gallery environment.

  1. Kristen Keegan and Zachary Polis

    Through the re-creation of an archetypal North American vacation site, this project questions our contemporary work ethic and inverts the utilitarian function of the parking stall into a space for reflective non-productivity. (Location: McCauley School)

  2. Juniper Quin, “The Hush Box”

    “The Hush Box” is a one-person stall that provides a quiet, private space to relax in the midst of a public arena. You are encouraged to use sensory deprivation gear provided to facilitate a moment of stillness amidst the rush of city life. (Location: McCauley School)

  3. Kelsie Acton, “Carspace”

    “Carspace” is a dance installation that explores the movements that we perform in our cars each day and our bodies' physical relationship to our cars. (Location: The Works)

  4. Shanell Papp

    The outline of a body in white crotchet explores the private act of mourning in the public sphere. (Location: The Works)

  5. Trent Wilkie

    Transformed into a campsite, this parking stall unearths our hilariously distorted and ominously foreshadowed understanding of “living” versus &ldquofunctional” and “wild” versus “civilized”. (Location: Sacred Heart Centre)

  6. Amy Shostak, “My Dido, The Orator”

    Meet my Dido (the Ukrainian word for grandfather). Nick Shostak, Senior. My Dido's done a lot of jobs in his life. My Dido speaks Ukrainian and Spanish. My Dido loves to cook and to talk politics. My Dido falls asleep in his recliner. Ask him about these things. (Location: Sacred Heart Centre)

  7. Sean Montgomery

    The iconic artist’s rug is used to symbolically explore the often private and contemplative space of the artist’s studio in a public setting. (Location: Sacred Heart Centre)

  8. Maegan Magathan

    This installation creates several microcosms of the city by projecting images from the public environment into body-size constructions. Displayed for solitary apprehension, live scenes of city life are separated from the viewer using a camera obscura. Scenes that would normally be experienced by a mass audience are transformed into personal discoveries, held individually in each camera container--encouraging the viewer to examine the role of representation in the understanding of our city. (Location: Boys and Girls Club of Edmonton)

  9. Stephen Cook “Memento”

    Internet memes are constructed, deconstructed and discarded faster than they can be followed. This museum tour identifies well-known Internet memes for your hearing pleasure. Trolls welcome. (Location: Boys and Girls Club of Edmonton)

  10. Lindsay Knox

    This project is part of an ongoing investigation of the materiality of the everyday and the dialectic of interiority. Using sculptural installations, the project explores the possible humor, plurality and ephemera surrounding notions of place. (Location: Boys and Girls Club of Edmonton)

  11. Jenna Mortemore, “Park-In-Lot”

    “Park-In-Lot” explores the use of parks as public spaces in the construction through the construction of a Victorian park within a parking stall. (Location: The Brick Parking Lot (101 St and 107 Avenue))

  12. Bill Damur, “It’s Getting Too Expensive To Sleep Anymore”

    This project explores the deeply personal behaviours surrounding our sleep and how they are inherently caught up with the security of our domestic surroundings. (Location: The Brick Parking Lot (Behind 101 St and 107 Avenue))

  13. Ed Hunt

    Even the inanimate come to life to watch. Privacy is a myth we understand but rarely know. (Location: The Brick Parking Lot (101 St and 107 Avenue))

  14. Theatre Yes, “Despair”

    In a world where so many aspects of our lives are exposed, our darkest moments may be the last frontier of experience that we will go to lengths to hide. Theatre Yes ventures into the world of performance installation to uncover these most profound moments. (Location: Perpendicular to Lucky 97 Market on 97 St and 107 Avenue))

  15. Daniel Evans, “En/Cage/Ed”

    “En/Cage/ed” is a performance work navigating the paradoxes of protection/confinement and communication/subversion through the public presentation of a private language. (Location: Behind Pino Bros Affordable Housing Inc)

  16. Tyler Sherard

    Sherard dissolves the divide between subject and viewer via a closed-circuit camera to explore the concept of the cohesively constructed “self”. (Location: Behind Pino Brothers Affordable Housing Inc)

  17. C.W. Carson, “Framing Ground”

    Framing Ground is an installation that captures a portrait of the McCauley community. Using detritus gathered within a one block segment of the inner city, C.W. Carson displays the accumulated material in found and recycled picture frames to portray a fragment of the neighborhood. (Location: 94 Street and 108 A Avenue, across from Giovanni Caboto Park))
