Just a reminder…
TONIGHT at 7pm, we’re hosting Welcome to the Neighbourhood, an algorithmic walk around Windsor’s west-end! Meet us at 362 California Ave (aka BCL HQ).
Bring your digital camera and bring some friends and get to know the new neighbourhood with us!
We’ll be taking over 406 Pelissier from June 8th-28th and setting up a consultancy to research, investigate, and imagine alternative uses for the entire parking structure located at the corner of Park and Pelissier. Invented studies, statistics, and illustrations will be exhibited and will result in a formal report / action plan for future initiatives in Windsor’s downtown core.
Along with Julie Sando’s Contemporary Visual Culture class show, CVC Citizen Show (running at 424 Pelissier), we’ll have a reception of sorts on June 11th, from 8-11pm in both spaces.
We’ll be working in the space (406 Pelissier) off and on throughout the month.
Danielle and I will be participating in Work in Progress #2, an MFA/Faculty forum held semi-regularly at the School of Visual Arts. We’ll discuss Broken City Lab and, as Lee Rodney so fittingly put it, “the extreme adventures of artist collectives and collaborations.” As well, Lee will be discussing her new project, a Detroit-Windsor Bookmobile. Plus apple cider!
The details: Wednesday, December 3 @ 7pm, Room 115, LeBel.
Our Tetris Tournament / Wheatpaste Demo / Sticker-Making Party went amazingly well—we successfully hijacked that big TV in the Lebel hallway, the tournament was filled with high-stakes Tetris 2 action (you can see Susan and Craig battling it out above), we demoed our wheatpaste recipe (hot water + flour until its a smoothie-like consistency) and lots of people made stickers for our commemorative plaque. Thanks to everyone who came out and made this thing happen!

Night of the Living Broken City was awesome. It was cold, but there was a good group of people that came out and enjoyed the glory that is Teenagers From Outer Space. We collectively decided it was too cold to stay out for the second movie, NIght of the Living Dead (sorry if anyone came out later and missed us!!!).
