PARKADE READING ROOM / M:ST9 Biennial


42154470_1884795108266901_8810488416849362944_o.jpg

In partnership with Shelf Life Books, TRUCK has invited artists included in this years’ M:ST 9 Biennal to select texts that align with and expand upon the ideas considered in their projects and research. The PARKADE Space allows readers an opportunity to engage with these texts in the context of the exhibitions.

M:ST 9 takes over theatres, galleries, and public spaces all over the downtown core from September 7 - October 7, 2018, bringing you opportunities to entangle with media in new and surprising ways through exhibitions, interactive installations, performances, and interventions.
