ps. In case you don’t already know, Winnipeg Arcades Project is something akin to a cultural studies mash up that puts Winnipeg’s curiosities into context. Come check it out! But first, a lil’ more info from the WAP crew:
- – -
Formed in 2010, WAP is a multi-disciplinary collective that creates miniature museum exhibits on unique or exemplary places in Winnipeg. One day, WAP will open a museum of local culture, and our current exhibits aim to introduce new material into the collection of this future museum. From McDonalds restaurants to the Downtown BIZ, the images and artifacts collected by WAP highlight Winnipeg’s material production, from mundane plans to grandiose visions. Next to the ever-resurrecting Winnipeg of civic boosters, WAP’s growing archive brings a degree of distance and criticalityto these visions.
This year, WAP will induct the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, the Youth For Christ Centre of Youth Excellence, and the elusive water-parks of Sam Katz into our collection. What do you think of these ‘Dreamhouses of the Collective?’ Come see our photos, videos, paintings and drawings and play some games with us.
