Recent ACAD graduate Lewis Liski has already put his ACAD experience to work by producing a documentary: Alternative Currency. The documentary attempts to answer the question: Where is my place in a city like Calgary as an emerging artist?
Alternative Currency takes the pulse of the broadest spectrum of the contemporary arts scene in Calgary. Professionals who work in the city’s thriving arts scene, as well as five emerging artists discuss the dynamics of working in the city that twice topped Macleans magazine’s list of Most Cultured Cities.
Some of the interviews Lewis has conducted include: Herringer Kiss, Paul Kuhn Gallery, Trepanier Baer, Skew,TRUCK, Stride, The New Gallery, EMMedia, Untitled Art Society, The Glenbow Museum, MoCA Calgary, Art Gallery of Calgary, Pith Galleries, Haight Gallery, 809, CAM, Straw Gallery, ESKER Foundation, Illingworth Kerr Gallery, JarvisHall Fine Art, AXIS, Market Collective and CADA. As well as interviews withwriters, curators, and working professionals in the Calgary arts community.
