What is ARTery?

ARTery is an exhibition organized and presented by the Art Gallery of Grande Prairie to the people of Grande Prairie who will be able to view important elements of the exhibition from inside their cars as they drive on Grande Prairie’s busiest street.

ARTery starts January 4, 2008, and your experience of it will grow daily until its conclusion on January 31.

The ARTery content on this website will grow and change every day from now until January 31. So visit us again tomorrow, and enjoy the show.

ARTery is a group exhibition of video and text installation works of art that will be displayed in several business windows on 100 Avenue, Grande Prairie’s main street. ARTery will occur in January, during the darkest period of the year, when Grande Prairie experiences nearly 14 hours of darkness per day. Artists in the exhibition include Michael Campbell, David Hoffos, Karina Aguilera Skvirsky, Micah Lexier (with Christian Bök), C. Wells, John Will, Anne Troake, and Bill Viola, and is curated by Edward Bader. The exhibition reflects on the concept of circulation from a variety of perspectives. From the body to language to society and ultimately to life itself, the exhibition places the viewer and the traffic jam from which it will be viewed into an international context, offering opportunities for immediately relevant meaning-making and transcendence to the captive audience, using the means usually employed by advertising, but for the opposite purpose.
