The Art of Conversation was a work done in collaboration with Tel-Talk, an intervention installation project taking place in telephone booths around Toronto curated by Paola Poletto. On June 13th, 2012 Monday Art Group and Red Wagon Collective decorated a phone booth in the Junction to coincide with the opening of the Tel-Talk exhibit at the Telephone Booth Gallery.
We started the construction of the installation at Monday Art Group, then we continued to work on it, adding details on site . Many conversations were had with neighbourhood members as we worked on The Art of Conversation.
A couple of weeks after our piece was completed someone torched it. We were very sad but also circumspect. In the end, setting fire to the work was part of the discussion.
