Mathieu Léger brings his installation Plausible Space to ARTsPLACE main gallery next week. Plausible Space is an installation of photographs and maps, which are re purposed to reflect what they represent, a landscape showing peaks, valleys, and bodies of water. Photographs presented in the installation depict the artist in two different situations; images of actions where the artist transforms the landscape, the other of a declaration of appropriation of territories. The images are installed as counterpoints to the maps . . . [click to read more]

Art in the 21st Century
Film Series

Each program is followed by a talk-back session.
Recommended donation per program: $5.00
Upstairs at ARTsPLACE, Mondays, 7-9pm
This series provides unparalleled access to the most innovative artists of our time, revealing how artists engage the culture around them and how art allows viewers to see the world in new ways.  The featured artists are grouped by their unique and revealing relationships to the places where they live: Chicago, Mexico City, Los Angeles and Vancouver.
Nov. 6  Program 1: Chicago 
Chicago is a city rooted in industry and towering architecture, and artists in Chicago are disrupting urban experience through experimentation.
Nov. 20      Program 2: Mexico City
Mexico City artists exit their homes and studios to use the growing megalopolis as  their canvas. The artists present everyday materials as artworks, mine recognizable images for their poetic potential, and take their art to the streets.
Dec. 4        Program 3: Los Angeles
While sprawling Los Angeles has world-class museums and art schools, artists working in the shadow of the entertainment industry are more “under the radar,” affording them the space and time to imagine.
Dec. 11      Program 4: Vancouver
In small and tightly-knit Vancouver, artists re-frame the world through a series of sophisticated illusions. By recreating historical moments, staging photos of vernacular scenes, and crafting intricate sculptures that trick the eye, artists reveal how everyday images and moments from the past are not always what  they seem.
