MAKE YOUR MARK! Collaborative Community Wall Art Project

April 16, 2015 @ 4:30 pm to 8:00 pm

Free

Come create a massive collaborative wall artwork with local artists Melissa Fisher and Murat Saman! Inspired by TYPOLOGY’s current exhibition, FLIGHTS & LANDINGS, this free, family-friendly event is a great way to experience and engage with the exciting installations, drawings, and sculptures of Brooklyn artist Tamara Gayer, Berlin artist Christine Gedeon, and Toronto artist Janine Miedzik. See how their lifelong fascinations with cities, maps, and the materials of commerce and construction have been translated into the dynamic and idiosyncratic lines, patterns, and planes of pure colour that make up their striking artworks. Then make your own mark using colourful self-adhesive vinyls and tapes on the expansive walls and quirky recesses of Artscape Youngplace’s 3rd floor hallway, where the resulting collaborative composition will remain on view throughout the weekend for all visitors to enjoy.

A fun, active, and creative event perfect for all ages. Materials will be provided and photos are encouraged!

This event is part of RECESS at Artscape Youngplace (180 Shaw Street), Thursday, April 16th (collaborative art project from 4:30–8 pm). Check in at TYPOLOGY, Suite 302 on the third floor, to receive exhibit info and art-making materials. Other activities in the building will include live music, dance, artist-led workshops, and a delicious community dinner. We look forward to seeing you there!


TYPOLOGY thanks Artscape Youngplace and Artscape Gibraltar Point for their generous support of this exhibition and event.
