June 17 — August 17, 2020


Next Door
is a temporary art exhibition in the Skeleton Park neighbourhood
featuring original works of art by local artists dispersed throughout
the area. Installations may be seen by the public from a safe distance
outside of homes, through windows, and in the natural elements as they
make their way through the Skeleton Park neighbourhood.

The project is a collaborative effort between the Skeleton Park Arts
and the Union Gallery and acts as a response to the current and
ever-shifting moment we find ourselves facing in relation to public
health. Next Door
emphasizes the hyperlocal—celebrating and making public practices of
“next-door neighbour” artists. The project addresses recent changes we
are all adapting to, including staying at home, spending an increased
amount of time wandering around our neighbourhoods, and coping with the
lack of communal gatherings. Next Door
aims to bring artmaking and viewing together as a form of supporting
mental health and community building during an unprecedented moment of
extreme isolation. The project also responds to the current inability to
open galleries’ doors, and encourages community engagement with art in
an open space, within a safe distance and at one’s own pace.

Artists featured in Next Door
include Chantal Rousseau, Kathleen Sellars, Francisco Corbett, Diane
Black, Jocelyn Purdie, Dave Gordon, Erika Olson, Simon Andrew, Marney
McDiarmid Grace MacDonald, Kilombo, ck nosun, Don Maynard, Jan Allen
Cheryl Pagurek, Matt Rogalsky, Corcoran Peppley Josh Lyon, and
Maureen Sheridan.
