Basecamp | Alexandre David, Atom Deguire, Michael Fernandes, & Ashley Neese | July 1 to July 30, 2009

Addressing contemporary art practice as a technique for reflecting upon and intervening in public space, TRUCK Gallery in Calgary will present a series of projects by Canadian and international artists during the month of July 2009, which take place entirely outside of the gallery space. The gallery space itself—as opposed to being an exhibition venue—will instead take on the role of a base camp. This will offer the artists involved in the exhibition a place to develop elements of their project, present documentation regarding their work, and engage visitors to the gallery in dialogue concerning art making and public space. Through this process the meaning and purpose of the gallery will be shifted, allowing TRUCK to contextualize and support practices that might otherwise be challenging to present within the traditional frameworks of an exhibition.
