The Trouble is…
Bring your questions, suspicions, and inspirations for art in public spaces to an open conversation on art as troublemaking and troublemaking as art.
Broken City Lab (BCL) are currently artists-in-residence at the Burrard Marina Field House. Their four month project, Flagged for Review examines the surrounding site and its relation to current perceptions of the city through a series of initiated conversations. Every Tuesday until the end of April, the collective will host public games, temporary installations and conversations concerning social and political issues present in Vancouver. These will culminate in the production of a series of flags to be installed at the Field House and throughout the city during the last two months of their residency.
The Field House Studio Residency Program is generously supported by the Vancouver Park Board and the City of Vancouver.
For this residency we gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the Province of British Columbia through the BC Creative Communities Award.MORE
