simultaneities in reflexivities
June 13, 7:00 PM
In Main Gallery
EMILIA-AMALIA continues its yearlong collaboration with the Canadian Filmmakers Distribution Centre (CFMDC), titled HOLES AND HOW TO FILL THEM, through a program of curated screenings. Inviting emerging artists and curators to respond to EMILIA-AMALIA’s programming, and to the CFMDC film collection, these screenings activate holes, gaps and omissions as artistic and political strategies.
Curated by Calla Durose-Moya, “simultaneities in reflexivities: absence/presence ⋆ seer/seen” is a program that engages with and revisits performance-for-camera work made by women and non-binary video artists in Canada. Through a variety of methods and materials, these artists’ works demonstrate that vulnerability is not only an affective modality, but also a political statement.
Featuring works by Sylvia Laliberté, Emily Vey Duke, Bridget Moser, oualie frost, Camila Salcedo, Kate Craig, Susan Britton and Martha Davis. Run time: 1 hour 22 min.
