Blind Feast at The Tremplin
TheForeman Art Gallery of Bishop’s University is pleased to present a special evening with artist collective Spurse on Thursday, February 16, 2012, at 6pm, at the Tremplin 16-30 (95 Wellington South). This free special event kicks off Spurse’s residency at the Gallery by raising questions in their signature method of research: handson, unscripted, passionate and sideways. As part of the feast of food and ideas will be open dialogue between the public and the artists concerning notions of sustainable development in the region. The Blind Feast will include a shinding of foods, ideas and adventures, to cook up with whoever and whatever shows up; a celebration to mark the beginning of something; an invitation to co-shape future worth having and a moment to sense the worlds we make, when and how we come together.
Spurse is a research and design collective that coshapes problems worth having with communities worth making. They build apparatuses for social and ecological change that are designed in place and in real-time for, with and by the agency of humans and non-humans alike. Spurse entangle with unlikely questions to transform our perceptions and to produce unexpected outcomes that endure long after we’re involved. www.spurse.org
