WORKS FOR CHANGE
by Madeleine Co. (Nicole Bazuin, Alex Hong, Cheryl Hsu)
Madeleine Co. created the Works for Change exhibition for the Gardiner Museum Community Art Space themed Art is Change.
The Works for Change exhibition recreated the set of This Art Works!, a CBC Original Series featuring emerging Canadian artists dealing with the most pressing social issues of today. Through the two-week exhibition, audiences were invited to participate in a free program of how-to workshops and performances led by This Art Works! Artists Ness Lee (How-to Make a Clay Mountain Person), Paddy Leung (How-to Make a Truth Bath Bomb) and Kaya DaCosta(How-to Make a Zine for Social Change). Guests contributed to a large-scale string installation titled How-To Make Art Work!, a tongue-in-cheek interactive artwork instructing people on how-to make art work for social change!
