From June 3–24 Peter Christenson (WA, USA) will be artist-in-residence at Upstreet Studio, Allen St, Charlottetown.

Christenson is a multidisciplinary artist, filmmaker, and educator from Metro Detroit. He is co-founder of Left of Centre, a guerrilla-marketing firm and artist collective, the catalyst behind the interventionist collaborative Null Set, and director of the Guest House Cultural Capital Residency scholar program.

Christenson’s practice is transdisciplinary, site-responsive, and intermedia—he works across media, tools, genres, and locations. His research and art are informed by past experiences working as a social worker and licensed psychotherapist, examining the complex sociopolitical, psychological, and cultural systems related to identity, place, and community, while seeking to facilitate constructive change, sustainable placemaking, and civic engagement.
