Next week, the Urban Planning Association at Concordia University will be hosting a seminar focusing on public art and public space with Sara Wookey and Karen Spencer.

Sara Wookey is a performance artist based out of LA.  She will be speaking about her performance and media-based project BEING PEDESTRIAN where she created various interventions while walking the city (a pretty unusual act in itself for LA).  The second speaker, Karen Spencer is a Montreal-based artist and writer who focuses on the fleeting moments experienced in the city.  Through walking, loitering, and riding the metro, she creates “performative gestures” while moving through the city.  Her work has been featured previously on Spacing and anyone who has ever seen the trilingual cardboard signs describing dreams scattered about the city has seen her work.

The seminar takes place on February 16th at 2h30 pm in room 1269 in the Hall Building (1455 boul de Maisonneuve O.) at Concordia University.  You can find more information on the speakers and the seminar on the UPA website.
