René Price – The Art of City Building

August 10

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 3:00am, repeating until September 4, 2018

Free

The Art of City Building is a modelled city, not a model city. Instead of a speculative representation of carefully planned and rationally managed development, it presents us with haphazard hoarded collections of juxtaposed, manipulated, and hacked objects that resemble and parody the city we know. But what city do we know?

-Excerpt from the essay by Sarah Gelbard

RENÉ PRICE is an Ideaguy/inventor, Quirky Mockartist, Scribbler, Rascal, Non-smoking cyber Luddite and Grand Amateur. He has shown his Artstuff from Sainte-Foy (Quebec) to Montreal, Ottawa, Cornwall, Toronto, Hamilton, London (Ontario), Sault Ste. Marie, Winnipeg (twice) and Calgary. He has been reviewed in Border Crossings, Art Papers (USA), Espace, the Artichoke and various newspapers. His artworks are in the odd collection. He wants to create MORCA (Museum of René’s Contemptorary Art) in the Ottawa area, sometime soon!
