Bank on Art: Modified ATM Machines as Virtual Exhibitions

by Kelly McCray

July 12, 2013

In the summer of 2009, in the midst of one of the worst global financial crises in history, Bank on Art installed the first-ever Contemporary Art ATM at the corner of Queen and Shaw in the Queen West Art District in Toronto, Canada. The idea—developed by Kelly McCray, in collaboration with Walter Willems—was to showcase artwork on ATM screens for people to see whether they withdrew money or not. The screens act as a sort of virtual exhibition using the ATMs as a medium.

Our over-all objective is to engage and expose the general public to the work of contemporary artists by introducing them through an activity—like using an ATM—that they are routinely engaged in.
