When: Oct. 23-Nov. 29 2009
With an artist's talk Thu Nov 26 at 8pm. Steve Higgins has "some real beefs with urban planning." Mostly, his frustrations have to do with the assumed authority of those in charge. Working between planning, architecture and sculpture, the Halifax-based veteran artist has explored this authority for 30 years. Although Haligonians will no doubt identify with urban planning foibles and difficulties, Higgins' work isn't location-specific and it's not an easy show. But with a mix of miniature-city sculptures, etched blueprints, inkjet prints of the white space in War and Peace, and a large wall drawing, there's plenty there to give you time to link the work together. –Mike Landry.
