Multi-disciplinary artist Theo Sims has garnered a reputation for an art practice that sites sculptural projects in social contexts often outside of the gallery. Wielding a sharp sense of humor, his objects include a working simulation of an Irish pub - The Candahar - which almost effortlessly prompted occasions for debate and dialogue. For Into the Streets: Avenues for Art, Sims looks beyond the gallery to the park surrounding it, installing a solitary asphalt parking stall (complete with a ticket booth and wooden barricade) upon the grassy lawns of Lethbridge's Galt Gardens. The startling displacement of such common urban vernacular, the parking stall, asks us to reconsider our relationship to natural lands versus manufactured landscapes, disrupts our expectations of public art, and serves as a literal platform for planned and spontaneous events and interventions.
Theo Sims lives in Winnipeg, Manitoba and is a multi-disciplinary artist who creates site and context specific work. He received his B.F.A. from Brighton Polytechnic, England in 1992 and his M.A.(Fine Art) from the University Of Ulster, Belfast, N.Ireland in 1994. Sims previously served as Co-Managing Editor at BlackFlash Magazine (Saskatoon), Program Coordinator at Ace Art Inc. (Winnipeg), and Director at The Context Gallery in Derry (N.Ire). His most recent curatorial experiment, The Lewyc Institute of Contemporary Art (LICA) is a gallery specializing in context and site-specific works produced in (and sometimes on) Sims's own home.
Sims has exhibited across Canada with solo exhibitions at The Tom Thomson Gallery in Owen Sound, The Rooms Provincial Museum and Art Gallery in Newfoundland, Presentation House Gallery in Vancouver, PlugIn ICA in Winnipeg, and the Illingworth Kerr Gallery in Calgary. He featured as part of the Montreal Biennale in 2007, Calgary's inaugural Nuit Blanche in 2012 and in Ghost Dance curated by Steve Loft at the Ryerson Image Centre in 2013. Sims has also exhibited in numerous exhibitions internationally in Poland, Denmark, Mexico, Australia, U.S.A., UK and Ireland. His work is featured in reviews and publications such as Abridged, C Magazine, Circa, The Irish Times, The Sunday Times, The Globe & Mail, Beijing Today, Border Crossings, BlackFlash, The New York Times and Macleans Magazine.

Social interaction is at the heart of Sims's The Candahar, a sculpture that invites our participation, and how we might consider the familiarity of a neighbourhood pub as a proposition for something more. Theo Sims has been an Artist in Residence at ACAD from early November 2011 rebuilding The Candahar in collaboration with the college's faculty, students, and the local community.

Sims's art is socially engaged. While sculptural, he rarely exhibits works in gallery contexts, deploying objects within situations that involve communities, instigate events and build relationships that test the boundaries of what might be called visual art.

Sims has invited artists residing in Northern Ireland and North America to create work for the walls of The Candahar, including pieces by Chris Roddy, Daniel Jewesbury, Locky Morris, Mark Orange, Brian Flynn, Richard Dyck, Paul Butler, Aurora Landin, Roger Crait, and a significant number of photographs donated by Wayne Giles.
