Intersections: Contemporary Artist Films
October 29 – February 6, 2017
Intersections brings together some of the most talented internationally acclaimed artists.
Curated by Darrin Martens, Gail and Stephen A. Jarislowsky Chief Curator, this film exhibition is framed as a series of visual and experiential intersections – a place and/or space where two or more lines of inquiry converge or cross. By transforming the traditional white cube exhibition spaces into a series of film/video rooms the Audain Art Museum will provide its visitors with a different way in which to explore and experience experimental and contemporary films and videos by some of Canada’s most engaging visual artists and artists of international stature from around the globe – a sub-focus of the exhibition will be work from Canadian First Nations, China and Mexico that explore aspects of indigeneity, diaspora and life along the Pacific Rim. The over-arching narrative of the exhibition will explore ideas related intersecting – of time, space, place and larger global social narratives related to the environment and the migration of peoples and ideas.
