Curbside Museum

September 3, 2020 to February 24, 2021

Curbside Museum started as a mini-museum in a fence along a public street in downtown Canmore. As a quiet intervention that can easily go unnoticed, it serves as a space of ideas and contemplation for those who stop by.

A small space big on stories, the Curbside Museum blurs the line between the factual, the fictional, and anything in-between. It’s a place where the real and the imagined carry the same weight within this cabinet of curiosities construction.

This exhibition features a newly constructed museum Good Luck /Bad Luck/ Who Knows? that will travel alongside photos of prior thematic explorations and their art objects. This exhibition has been created in collaboration with artist and curator Enza Apa, an independent producer/ writer, who works on projects that intersect the disciplines of museology, visual arts, music, fiction, and film.

Curated by Danielle Ribar, Art Gallery of Grande Prairie (TREX Region 1)
