Artist Talk: Cassie Paine
June 15 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Join Cassie Paine at Artcite Inc. on Saturday, June 15, for a free Artist Talk on her solo exhibition, Pedestrian Values. Cassie will contextualize the themes in the exhibition, provide insight into her practice, and answer any questions you may have about her work. The talk starts at 2pm but the gallery is open from 12–6pm, so come early or stay late. This is the last day of the exhibition, don’t miss it!

Pedestrian Values reflects on economic shifts, labour patterns, and development in post-industrial urban cities. Using metal fabrication casting, and interventionist tactics to alter coded materials and infrastructure found in public space, these installations reveal underlying power structures in urban environments, critiquing capitalist value systems focused on profit and development, exposing how these ideals are built into our everyday environment.

The recurring banknote pattern from the board game, Monopoly, serves as an explicit critique of capital’s control over spatial relations. It carries through the exhibition, adorning a traffic barrel, cast coins scattered across the floor of the gallery, and a construction privacy mesh.


Cassie Paine is a sculpture/installation artist and printmaker based in Windsor, ON and Montreal, QC. Her work reflects on the economic precarity of post-industrial cities; investigating urban planning strategies, systems in place to control automotive and pedestrian traffic, and distinctions between public and private places. Paine recently completed her MFA at Concordia University (2024) and holds a BFA with distinction from OCAD University (2018). In addition to making, Paine is a passionate educator who has worked as an instructor at Concordia University and Atelier La Coulée, a cooperative supporting metal art, welding and casting in Montreal, QC.
