TRUCK Contemporary Art in Calgary presents:

TRUCK Contemporary Art in Calgary is a non-profit artist-run centre dedicated to the development and public presentation of contemporary art. TRUCK is pleased to present an open forum discussion in collaboration with our recent exhibition “Cecil Hotel” by Calgary-based artist Mark Clintberg.

The Cecil Hotel Open Forum will include presentations by Cynthia Bird, Son Edworthy, Tomas Jonsson, TracyRay Lewis, and John Rowland that will touch on their work and experiences in fields related to the Cecil Hotel context. The presentations will be followed by a group discussion during which the audience will be invited to contribute their experiences and ideas. The artist of “Cecil Hotel” Mark Clintberg, will also be present at the event to discuss his work and answer questions.

This event aims to provide an opportunity for open and inclusive conversation relating to the subject of the Cecil Hotel, and places like it, as well as stimulate discussion that will work to build support for communities impacted by displacement, and encourage participation in movements that support these communities. The discussion will be free to attend and open to all.
