Graham Coreil-Allen '10
(Mount Royal School of Art)
Graham Coreil-Allen is an interventionist public artist. Through urban analysis and research, he develops projects that test the boundaries of pedestrian agency, interprets the overlooked and banal, and investigates the negotiable nature of public space. His ongoing New Public Sites - Station North Ave. project addresses how lost spaces and overlooked features of the city are experienced at a pedestrian level. The project starts with a radically expanded understanding of civic space- and through mapping, installations, video, tours and print media-it proposes alternatives for representing and activating the potential for these under-recognized sites. New Public Sites will be featured in the 2012 Venice Architecture Biennale.
