Collaborative Projections begin Tomorrow Night!
Thanks to everyone who came out for the 'something strangely familiar' archive screening last week! A few artists were in attendance: Lindsay McIntyre (2 haunting works about place 'where no one knew her name' & 'barge dirge'); John Osborne (the psychedelic explosion of colour & shape 'Transformations'); Kyle Armstrong (the haunting collage 'Mental Notes from a Cluttered Mind); and Patrick Arès Pilon (a live film projector performance with Gerry Morita).
If you have never spent time in the FAVA archives I highly recommend it - there is a wealth of strong work just waiting to be watched!
Tomorrow night begins part one of a 2 (actually 3...possibly 4?) part workshop on the Art of Projection. We'l be collaborating on making projections for FAVA's summer party next week - along with a live musical performance by Smokey. Stay tuned for news on what we get up to and how things progress. And come by next Friday night to see it all in person!
In the meantime you should head over to the Metro Cinema tonight for part 2 of the Images Festival Cross Canada Tour - A Letter to the Living! Featuring a work & a Q&A by FAVA's own Lindsay McIntyre.
