ART + ACTIVISM features the artwork of three Edmonton based artists: Mary Joyce, Paula Kirman and Juan Lopezdabdoub. All three artists are political and make art to change people’s lives. All three artists accept that there is a social responsibility in being an artist and that responsibility is of paramount importance – there is no frivolous subject matter here. Instead, the works created by these artists are about ideas and in the words of Mary Joyce, “ideas influence people and artists are well trained to communicate.”

Reception Wednesday, August 31 from 7–9pm with artists in attendance, and the show runs September 1 to November 26. The Project Space will be closed Saturday, September 3 & 24. The Visual Arts Alberta~CARFAC Project Space is located at 3rd Floor 10215–112 Street NW.
