Friends of Watkinson Park does Nuit Blanche

Friends of Watkinson Park collaborated with OCAP, Carol Condé and Karl Beveridge and  Red Wagon Collective/Monday Art Group on a project for Nuit Blanche. The project was part of an installation called: A Monument to the Century of Revolutions, which was produced for the international public arts conference, Creative Time and Nuit Blanche.  A Monument to the Century of Revolutions was an immersive and living installation consisting of an array of shipping containers arranged in a wedge shape puncturing the circle of city hall, a reference to L. Lissitzky’s Beat the Whites With the Red Wedge. The 20 some odd shipping containers produced a small village housing works from Chto Delat and local artist activist groups reflecting on the history and future of revolution. With individual and collective actions on Nathan Philips Square and stage, City Hall was transformed into a veritable mass-shipped revolution that unpacks into a world.
