Actions: What You Can Do With the City is a fascinating, sprawling exhibition currently showing at the Canadian Centre for Architecture in Montreal. Leisure’s own Meredith Carruthers was a member of the curatorial team for this exhibition. Leisure would like to acknowledge and salute the hard work that Meredith and all her colleagues put into the exhibition and congratulate them on a job extremely well done!

An exploration of how everyday human actions can animate and influence the perception and experience of contemporary cities. Seemingly common activities such as gardening, recycling, playing, and walking are pushed beyond their usual definition by the international architects, artists, and collectives featured in the exhibition. Their experimental interactions with the urban environment show the potential of a new level of participation by city residents.
