Noxious Sector was founded in 2005 and is an ongoing collaborative endeavour by Canadian artists Ted Hiebert, Doug Jarvis and Jackson 2Bears. Dedicated to the exploration of questions of the imaginative, the paranormal and the absurd, Noxious Sector projects attempt to redefine the meaning of artistic possibility through extended propositions that challenge consensual norms while also provoking stimulating forums for dialogue and discourse. Conceived as a formalized forum for informal inquiry, Noxious Sector projects take the form of performances, installations, curatorial initiatives and artistic collaborations.
