Between February 3 and April 7, 2013, Alice Campbell and I walked along the perimeter of Vancouver, BC. The walk was approximately 91km long, and took place over 9 trips. It arbitrarily began and ended near New Brighton Park, in the NE corner of Vancouver. During the walk, we tracked the city’s edges, and sought out its publicly accessible boundaries. In combination with the written works by Alice Campbell and Jeff O'Brien, the exhibition examines the physical and social landscapes and barriers encountered in Vancouver, the photographic history of Vancouver, and the role of edges and boundaries in Vancouver’s civic identity.
If you would like to purchase a copy of the catalog, including a full collection of images in the series and essays by Alice Campbell and Jeff O'Brien, please contact me. A recording of a panel discussion with Alice Campbell, Jeff O'Brien, Mohammad Salemy, Gam curator Tarah Hogue, and myself is available here.
