Curbside Museum started as a mini-museum in a fence along a public street in downtown Canmore. As a quiet intervention that can easily go unnoticed, it serves as a space of ideas and contemplation for those who stop by. A small space big on stories, the Curbside Museum blurs the line between the factual, the fictional, and anything in-between. It is a place where the real and the imagined carry the same weight within this cabinet of curiosities construction. This exhibition features a newly constructed museum Good Luck /Bad Luck that will travel alongside photos of prior thematic explorations and their art objects.
This has been created in collaboration with artist and curator Enza Apa, an independent producer/writer, who works on projects that intersect the disciplines of museology, visual arts, music, fiction, and film.
