Curated by Ciar O’Mahony

Time 2 Imagine Some Alternatives (TISA) is an exhibition in the form of a zine. Its aim is to explore the effect of marketized art education and debt on artistic production in Canada and the US. These relationships are explored from the perspectives of eight currently practicing artists, curators, and arts educators based in each country.

The zine is activated by an accompanying video, featuring seven of the eight contributors speaking about their work and their personal involvement in the subject matter. The video functions similarly to a public program such as an artist talk while allowing contributors located across Canada and the US to participate equally. The video is available to be viewed below.

Two zine contributions have online components. Click [here] to play "Making it", an augmented reality board game from contributor Cat bluemke, and [here] to participate in the online "Arts Education Administration Survey" from contributors The Department of Reflection.
