Broadway Subway Project artists

Great Northern Way-Emily Carr Station

Lou Sheppard is a Canadian artist working in interdisciplinary audio, performance and installation-based practice. He often looks to what is missing or can no longer be experienced in a particular place, creating art that memorializes characteristics that once existed in the area surrounding the installation. Sheppard will engage Emily Carr University of Art and Design students in conceptual development and/or artwork production.

Mount Pleasant Station

Sylvan Hamburger grew up in the Mount Pleasant neighbourhood and was always surrounded by actors and artists. At age seven, one of his drawings was used as a poster for a theatre, sparking an interest in drawing, printing and creating that has lasted to this day. He works primarily with printmaking techniques, salvaged materials, textiles and installations.

Broadway-City Hall Station

The artist team is Theatre Replacement (James Long and Maiko Yamamoto), in collaboration with Vanessa Kwan, Remy Siu and Cindy Mochizuki. Specializing in interactive media, animation, video, live performance and installation, the Broadway Subject Project marks the first time this team of five artists has collaborated on a project.

South Granville Station

Vancouver-born Derek Root is a graduate of Emily Carr University of Art and Design and has exhibited across Canada and internationally. His commissioned work uses the language of geometric abstraction and vibrant colour to alter viewers’ readings of architecture and space.
