Alberta's Premier Rachel Notley will be hosting Calgary’s first Art from the Unknown exhibit at McDougall Centre. Our guerrilla art installation Disposable Red Woman will be featured in the display. As a social experiment, the artists of this display placed the piece on various streets in Calgary, Canada and started filming the public’s reactions. This art piece questions our lack of responsibility and urgency about Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls, Trans & Two-Spirits in Canada. The artists of this project hope to evoke empathy and a sense of urgency in society to intervene with this injustice.
We invite everyone to join us and see our art work and experiment in action. This free event provides a no-cost gallery space to new and emerging artists in our community. Art from the Unknown will be held at the historic McDougall Centre building at 455 6 St. SW.
