Saturday, September 20, 2014 @ 7:00PM â€“ 1:00AM
JJ Young Room, EPCOR Centre for the Performing Arts â€“ 205 8th Ave SE
Fermentation is an interactive media art installation, which begins in research and extends into a period of procrastination that includes thought, time, avoidance, and stimulation by an array of activities and sensory elements.
The public is invited to explore the JJ Young Room at the EPCOR Centre for the Performing Arts, which is intended to over-stimulate, while inducing a sense of play and disorder. With multiple 16mm projections, cameraless animation, live performance, cassette players, slide projections, record players, View-Masters, fermented food, and more, viewers will experience a cacophony of the senses.
A Survey of Video Art from Vtape’s Collection
Thursday July 31, August 7 + August 14, 2014 @ 9 â€“ 10PM
EMMEDIA Parking Lot â€“ 351 11 Ave SW
(In case of rain, we will move the screening inside to EMMEDIA’s screening room.)
EMMEDIA is proud to present a summer series of outdoor screenings in our downtown parking lot, featuring works from prolific video artists in Canada and beyond. Curators Lindsay Sorell, Lowell Smith, and Teresa Tam selected three screening programs using Vtapeâ€™s vast catalogue of videos. Vtape is Canadaâ€™s leading artist-run, not-for-profit distributor of video art that includes a diverse collection of work from the early 1970s to the present. Join us on Thursday nights as we survey contemporary and historical media artworks that experiment with the medium of video, while breaking barriers and leading the way for avant-garde video artists to come. Light refreshments will be provided as we enjoy the summer night!
