Curbside Museum started as a mini-museum built into a fence along a public street in downtown Canmore. As a quiet intervention that can easily go unnoticed, it serves as a space of ideas and contemplation for those who stop by. A small space big on stories, the Curbside Museum blurs the line between the factual, the fictional, and anything in-between. It’s a place where the real and the imagined carry the same weight within this cabinet of curiosities construction.
This exhibition features a newly constructed museum “Good Luck /Bad Luck/ Who Knows?” that will travel alongside photos of prior thematic explorations and their art objects. This has been created in collaboration with artist and curator Enza Apa, an independent producer and writer who works on projects that intersect the disciplines of museology, visual arts, music, fiction, and film.
Curbside Museum is a small exhibition space tucked in a fence along a public sidewalk in Canmore, Alberta. Exhibitions at this micro museum explore ideas both large and small, on subjects factual or fictional, and range from the whimsical to the serious, with no limits except what fits within the museum itself. Founded and curated by Enza Apa, the Curbside Museum is an ongoing project with new exhibits every 7-8 weeks. The Curbside Museum is open every day, all day and is located on Railway Avenue at Pinewood Crescent in Canmore.
