The X-Practice Project
X-Practice Project is a Guelph-based, collaborative, multidisciplinary youth arts incubator, funded by the Ontario Arts Council. This Saturday, the group will unveil its culminating project: Revealing The Unseen, an interdisciplinary and multimedia exhibition honouring the past, present and future of our community and our world.
“The exhibition is something of a time machine,” says Todd Harrison, one of the X-Practice Project facilitators. “The installations our artists have created intend to take the audience back in time, acknowledge the gravity of the present and then transport them into an imagined, hopeful future. Expect the unexpected!”
Over the past two months, experienced facilitators have worked with a diverse group of emerging artists to curate and produce a unique multimedia experience. In accordance with COVID-19 guidelines, team members met virtually and brainstormed ideas, guided and mentored by visiting professional artists. “The X-Practice Project exhibition is also a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, continuing in the grand tradition of art to bring people together during crisis.”
