Art & Bicycles

at 5:37 pm posted by Alex H

Leila Sidi and Kim Smith are co-artists in residence at EBC this summer and fall.

Kim Smith is a Edmonton repeat offender in collaborative art making and late night bike riding on her minimally maintained two-wheeled chariot. She takes DIY bike maintenance to a whole new level where she expects her bike to fix itself. In the time she “saves” on bicycle maintenance, Kim has honed mad skills in everything artful from film and animation to fun houses turned into multi-sense nonsense. She looks forward a summer of art nights, workshops and a final bike art shebang with you!

Leila Sidi is one slick and greasy bike mechanic. But after having mended a few too many flats on her many two-wheelers, Leila has given up the pursuit of higher bicycle know-how to devote her blood, sweat, and tears (mainly tears) to making Edmonton a more cycling-cultured place. Having a background in photography, making stuff, and doing things, Leila is excited to make and share art (and jokes) with each and every one of you.

The two of us are giddy to be kicking around EBC for a summer of making use out of disuse, culminating in an explosive final night of bicycle and art wonder.
