ABOUT CAMPER: BIKE-IN CINEMA
CAMPER (Contemporary Art Mobile Public Exhibition Rig) is one of TRUCK Gallery’s regular public programs. Utilizing a 1975 Dodge Empress motor home, the CAMPER has been modified to become a portable public exhibition and project space. CAMPER’s mandate is to investigate the places where art, the road, education and recreation meet, and to explore these intersections in an inclusive, participation-based manner.
Currently CAMPER is host to Bike-in Cinema, an outdoor screening series presented by TRUCK in partnership with some of Calgary’s finest film, production and new media organizations. Using the CAMPER as a site for projection, Bike-in Cinema is a collaborative celebration of film, animation and media that encourages exploration of Calgary’s urban environment.
Set in the various locations of the Calgary outdoors, Bike-in Cinema invites all to cycle towards the CAMPER for a night full of animation and film!
