Bike Tour and Artist’s Talk and Panel on Placemaking – with Michel de Broin, HUB, & Vancouver Parks
Join us for a Bike Tour and Artist Talk on September 28, 11 AM - 3 PM
Join the 2018-2020 Vancouver Biennale for a cycling tour with HUB Cycling visiting some of Vancouver’s public sculptures and learning a bit about the history of Vancouver. The tour will end on Granville Island, giving participants the opportunity to enjoy light refreshments and a free artist talk and panel discussion around Placemaking featuring Michel de Broin, HUB Cycling, and the Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation. Michel de Broin is in Vancouver to prepare for the installation of his work Deviations in Charleson Park in mid-October.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Vancouver is a city consumed with urban planning, transit and the rebirth of cycling. Michel de Broin’s Deviations, a fanciful bike route coming off a popular bike path in Charleson Park, occurs within this setting. The “squiggly” path winds in on itself in an invitation to cyclists and passersby to amuse themselves with the impossible task of “following the path.” The emphasis on chance and unpredictability inspires and opens up new avenues for imagination and mobility. Deviations invites you to re-IMAGE-n bike lanes as an “artful” transformation of public space.
