KIOSK: Launch Thursday July 11 6-8pm
The Burnaby Art Gallery is pleased to announce KIOSK, an installation at Civic Square, Bob Prittie Library, Metrotown that will play host to a series of unique public art projects this summer. Designed by artist/designer Rebecca Bayer to evoke the form of an information booth, the structure will be the base for a series of projects that launch from the form and function of a kiosk.
Six local and international artists will alternate sharing and transforming the purpose-built structure through the months of July to September. Commissioned by the Burnaby Art Gallery with support from BC Arts Council, KIOSK presents performances, installations, exchanges, and conversations for a pedestrian public to encounter.
