MPB at the WPGC (2012)

World Portable Galleries Convention 2012

Halifax, NS

A collaborative work instigated by Daniel Dugas and Valerie LeBlanc

Here is a first glimpse at the project.  We will be adding to the documentation.

For the WPGC we assembled a bamboo ‘fishing pole’ and hooked up a mini-spy cam to it. Valerie put on the MPB and we stepped out to explore views of the city not readily visible to passersby. We talked with other pedestrians and pointed the camera into spaces that they were interested in examining. Several of the WPGC curators and Eye Level Members stepped out with us to try out the apparatus. As images were transferred from the spycam to the MPB monitor, we used a separate camcorder to record what the spycam saw.

7pm at 161 Gallon Gallery 
Curators Talk and Reception: Daniel Joyce and Miriam Moren
Description: Halifax is the scenic capital of Nova Scotia and the largest city in the Maritimes. It is famous as a tourist port of call and a cultural and historical hub, despite its ailing economy. Discussions about constructing a new convention centre in the downtown core have cited economic spinoffs and putting the province on the map. This means more visitors, more meeting, more deals, more money…eh? With Halifax as a backdrop, our convention seeks to look at why we gather, and the many different qualities of convening. We invite everyone any anyone to come and share your thoughts in this discussion.

Friday evening will be a chance to wind down at the homegrown gallery of 161 Gallon Gallery. This gallery has existed in the home of Daniel Joyce and Miriam Moren on the corner of Robie and Cunard in Halifax for almost a decade exhibiting works by many of Halifax’s emerging and established contemporary artists. Miriam and Daniel invite the WPGC to their home for a talk and reception of the work of Lukas Pearse in 161 Gallon Gallery.Saturday, September 8th
