“The site is a place where a piece should be but isn’t.” - Robert Smithson, Artist
Fringe Onsite is a brand new project in collaboration with The Only Animal that is helping 13 Fringe artists create and develop their own site-specific work for the Fringe. Over the course of six months, the artists in the Onsite program work intensively with the Only Animal’s Producing Artistic Director, Kendra Fanconi, to embrace every nook and cranny of Granville Island and bring the space to life for the Fringe in September.
