Living Map

April 4 @ 5:30 pm 7:00 pm UTC-6

An Exhibition Presented by Contemporary Calgary and National accessArts Centre

Opening Reception – Free Event

Living Map showcases diverse artists offering distinct and personal interpretations of their daily experiences with shared spaces. Developed during a residency at Contemporary Calgary, this collection explores how disabled artists’ lives intertwine with their environments, focusing on places that reveal their sensitivities, showcase their resilience, and illustrate their interactions with the world around them. 

Translated into sculpture, painting, performance, and sonic explorations, the works are a journey through the emotional depth and valuable insight of each artist’s experiences. From mundane bus rides to strolls through familiar neighbourhoods, everyday experiences transform into spaces where intricate stories, small wonders, and unexpected developments coexist, blending dark humour, intimate moments, and shared sensations while navigating a city.
