Monumental Mount Royal North

Taught by Monica Amor, Sites, Places and Monuments is a graduate seminar that explores complex issues of site specificity, memory, and monumentality in contemporary art. Students in the course collaborated with MICA alum and artist Graham Coreil-Allen for their final assignment, a public art project entitled Monumental Mount Royal North (MMRN). Inspired by French Situationism, Graham's work focuses on public space and the contradictions of the urban environment. He has excelled in the production of walking tours that highlight his interest in pedestrian agency.

Graham and Monica coordinated the development of a community-informed walking tour that explored and represented the history, design, ownership, and culture of the intersection of North and Mount Royal Avenue. Student groups researched the history of this area, conducted interviews with constituents, designed maps and temporary signs for the tour, as well as encouraged participation from community members. More info about this course and the tour can be viewed on the MMRN Tumblr page.
