The departure point for this exhibition is a Halifax map stamped with the date May 16, 1973 by the Japanese artist On Kawara. Part of his “I Went” series, Kawara’s map is a record of his walks through Halifax during a visit to the city in 1973. In these new art works by Robert Bean and Barbara Lounder, numerous locations and their atmospheres are cited using photography, objects and maps. The exhibition is accompanied by a public walk and conversation that retrace Kawara’s map, on Sunday September 22. Please join us for a stroll in the Breathable starting at 1pm on Quinpool Road at Vernon Street, across from the Dilly Dally Café.
