Feature
CAMPER (Contemporary Art Mobile Public Exhibition Rig) is a 1975 Dodge Empress motor-home, modified to become a portable public exhibition and project space.  CAMPER’s mandate is to investigate the places where art, the road, education, and recreation meet, and to explore these intersections in an inclusive, participation-oriented manner that fosters public engagement and appreciation of contemporary art practices.
CAMPER initially started out hosting the popular Patch Project. After three successful years, CAMPER was reinvented as a project-based residency program that offered artists the unique opportunity for artistic exploration and public engagement. Currently CAMPER hosts our new outdoor screening series, Bike-in Cinema!
 
Bike-in Cinema is an outdoor screening series hosted by TRUCK Gallery’s CAMPER (Contemporary Art Mobile Public Exhibition Rig) presented in partnership with some of Calgary’s finest film, production and new media organizations. Using the CAMPER as a site for projection, Bike-in Cinema is a collaborative celebration of film, animation and media that encourages exploration of Calgary’s urban environment.

Now in its second year, Bike-in Cinema will take viewers on a journey down an open road, exploring the wonders of unfamiliar places and the path less travelled. Set in the various locations of the Calgary outdoors, Bike-in Cinema invites all to cycle towards the CAMPER for a night full of animation and film!
