The Field – a first ARCA commission

 

The Field is ARCA’s first venture into commissioning works that aim to provide perspective on the role of Canadian artist-run centres. This video by emerging filmmaker Heidi Phillips focuses on one install at RAW: Gallery of Architecture & Design in Winnipeg. The environment created by artist-architect Frank Fantauzzi, associate professor in the Department of Architecture at the University of Manitoba, Charlie O’Geen and a team of collaborators, portrays how, more and more, artist-run centres support an ever-expanding artistic field, across disciplines, and across communities.
