MICHEL DE BROIN’S ‘DEVIATIONS’ TO BE UNVEILED AT CHARLESON PARK ON SEPTEMBER 28, 2018

Vancouver is a city consumed with urban planning, transit and the rebirth of cycling. Michel de Broin’s Deviations, a fanciful bike route deviating off of a popular bike path in Charleson Park, occurs within this setting.

The ‘squiggly’ path winds in on itself in an invitation to cyclists and passersby to amuse themselves with the impossible task of ‘following the path’.

Sep 28: 11 am – A cycling tour with HUB Cycling, including a stop in Charleson Park to visit Michel de Broin’s new installation, Deviations, where the artist will engage with visitors in a performance piece as he adds finishing touches to the painted line of his deviated path.

Sep 28: 2 – 3 pm – Discussion: Public Art, Urban Planning, Parks and Creative Place-Making at the False Creek Community Centre – 1318 Cartwright St, Vancouver, Granville Island.  A free artist talk with Michel de Broin, Derik Wenman, President of HUB’s board of directors and Commissioner Stuart MacKinnon speaking on behalf of the Vancouver Board of Parks & Recreation.
