Authors Hannah Jickling, Helen Reed

Multiple Elementary explores the elementary school classroom as a site of invention and reception of contemporary art practices. Part exhibition catalogue, part artists’ book and part corner store advertisement, the book reflects on the making of an artwork by Hannah Jickling and Helen Reed, in collaboration with a class of grade six students in Toronto.

Begun as a riff on the Ontario social studies curriculum “Canada and It’s Trading Partners”, the engagement with students evolved as a series of field trips, extended research and finally, the making of 28 chocolates, each as an edition of ten. Explorations of trade, exchange and labour took shape as exercises in public engagement, curatorial experimentation and institutional translation. Beyond socially engaged practices and expressions of art-as-pedagogy, this book explores aesthetic and representative possibilities for process-based and publicly oriented artworks, especially amidst the complications and contradictions inherent to collaborations with children.

Hannah Jickling is a Vancouver-based multidisciplinary artist whose projects include sport, outdoor recreation and education as models for performance, participation and feminist engagement. Helen Reed is a Vancouver-based artist who has made work specific for communities such as Twin Peaks fans, lesbian separatists and high-school art teacher candidates.
