IDLE WORSHIP: mobile exhibition

In late September, 8 artist-driven cars became moving micro-galleries, welcoming visitors to experience a series of strange, immersive, whimsical, playful, absurd, and satirical artworks – each tucked inside its own automobile. Traveling in a law-abiding motorcade, IDLE WORSHIP responded to Alberta’s car-centric culture in a slow rally from familiar place to place – traversing the Calgary landscape as so many commuters do daily, but with an utterly different intention. Pithy and playful, IDLE WORSHIP was equal parts community project, commentary, and intervention in plain sight.

IDLE WORSHIP

IDLE WORSHIP is a mobile exhibition of art and performance in cars touring across the parking lots of the greater Calgary / Mohkinstsis area on Sept 24 and 25, 2022. Intended to subvert the car-centric culture of Alberta and utilize the “non-site site” of the car interior, IDLE WORSHIP is part community project, commentary, and intervention in plain sight.

IDLE WORSHIP is a spinoff of The Hibernation Project.

We are delighted to announce the themes for the 4th Hibernation Project, our annual DIY domestic art intervention bridging Winter to Spring.

This year, locations range from tobogganing hills, to domestic space, to community radio, and beyond!

Every month, artists and musicians respond to a theme, making new compositions or sharing existing works.
