Sidewalk Cinema

A street-level digital screen with audio visible from the Northwest outside corner of the AGA. See the works daily from 10am-10pm.

The AGA Sidewalk Cinema is a new initiative being launched as part of the City of Edmonton’s 2021 Downtown Spark project, a series of exhibits and experiences that are free, take place outdoors and are safe to enjoy as they allow for physical distancing and small groups. Mounted on the Northwest corner of the AGA building, the AGA Sidewalk Cinema is a street-level digital screen with audio, that is visible from outside of the AGA building.

Statement from the Jury

The jury was very excited to select the inaugural program for the Art Gallery of Alberta’s new Sidewalk Cinema. From over 100 submissions, the jury chose 12 works. We were impressed by the diversity of submissions that came from many art communities in and around the Province. Wanting to represent that diversity, the jury selected a range of artistic approaches, from animation to spoken word, from mini-documentaries to short narrative films. Many of the works selected are reflections of the artists’ identities, which speak to both personal and collective experiences. We are interested in the dynamics of presenting these personal experiences in a public venue and want to celebrate the personal on the public stage of the Sidewalk Cinema
