Unstuck | Marla Hlady

presented by send + receive, a festival of sound

October 7 – 28, 2016

Artist talk and opening reception October 7 at 7:00pm. 

For more information, visit www.sendandreceive.org

Toronto-based artist Marla Hlady creates distinct works that play with concepts of utility through audio, kinetic sculpture and sculptural installation. We have invited her to present a solo exhibition featuring three works that engage with this year’s Space & Sound theme from a distinctly architectural perspective. This solo exhibition will feature a new version of Walls, a multi-dimensional kinetic sound installation that reimagines the gallery space as a moving sculptural instrument, Third Floor Radiator, a multimedia sculpture that scales down the Gairloch Gardens gallery in Oakville to dollhouse dimensions, with each room animated and activated as a unique sound object and the silent and playful Leveller, a seemingly utilitarian machine that is perpetually seeking balance.

Presented in partnership with aceartinc. with additional assistance from the Manitoba Arts Council, Ontario Arts Council and University of Toronto at Scarborough.

I AM HERE project

7 pm, Wednesday, 30 March 2016

I AM HERE, a multimedia series by Caro LaFlamme and Kira Koop, challenges the disparity between physical and intellectual space allotted to men and womyn in public spaces. The photographic series shares the stories of four consenting participants posing in locations where they were harassed. White capes draped over their shoulders bear two separate but connected statements: I AM HERE and (I AM NOT FOR YOU), challenging the viewer’s gaze.

Koop’s photographic quartet DEMAND/DECLARE documents locations of events and interactions where Koop was denied full personhood. The series mixes interior and exterior spaces, exploring both the public and the private. SEE ME becomes a mantra, repeated as a plea and a command.

 

 

Limpe Fuchs | Artist Talk

2 October, 5:15 pm, MAWA, 611 Main St.

Presented for send+receive in partnership with MAWA

German artist Limpe Fuchs broke early from her classical training to experiment with “no formalism”-improvisational sound and visual performance using handmade instruments and sound sculptures. Her fascinating artistic career spans over forty years of pushing musical and performance boundaries with an open and intuitive approach. For this event, Fuchs will present some of her handmade instruments and discuss the ideas and concepts behind her often whimsical and rousing work.

Curator selected for the Indigenous Residency

Indigenous Curatorial Residency

In partnership with the Aboriginal Curatorial Collective and with the generous support of the Winnipeg Foundation, aceartinc. has created an Indigenous Curatorial Residency.

The Curator

aceartinc. and the Aboriginal Curatorial Collective are delighted to announce that the selection committee has considered the applications to the Indigenous Curatorial Residency program and made their selection. Niki Little will begin the residency on August 4th, 2015. She will mount the exhibition, Enendaman | Anminigook, in January 2016.

The Curatorial Project

Enendaman | Anminigook will investigate the concept of authorship in contemporary Indigenous art; more specifically, utilizing this notion as a model to investigate the intersecting points of lineage, Indigenous female territories, and the value associated with labour/cultural skill. Little hopes to create a space that is a form of generative process and resistance revealing the nuanced complexity of recentering women.

The Curator

Niki Little is an artist/observer and arts administrator whose works extends from writing, curating, arts coordination and engaging in transient artistic experiences. She is interested in artistic and curatorial strategies that investigates art consumerism, gender, culture and cultural Diaspora with a hint of youth-inspired ambivalence along the way. She is a member of The Ephemerals, a female Indigenous art collective. Little is on the Board of Directors at Urban Shaman (Vice-President), and recently stepped down from President for the Independent Media Arts Alliance, and Treasurer for the National Indigenous Media Arts Coalition. She studied at the University of Manitoba, the National Screen Institute, and the Camberwell College of Art, London, UK, and completed the Mentoring Artists for Women’s Art (MAWA) mentorship program.

Filling the Hole – Art and the spaces of the City

Dr. David Churchill & Frank Livingston Artist Talk | 13 February, 7pm

David-Churchill-web

For five months between August 2013 and January 2014 twenty-two artists participated in an urban art experiment by placing their work in a small hole in the back exterior wall of a grocery store in Winnipeg’s West End. Each Sunday afternoon a different artist would install their work in this modest opening facing out into a back alley. Though artist statements and short bio were posted on social media the actual gallery site was devoid of any indications or explanations of the art or artist. This impromptu micro gallery presented art at its most vulnerable, exposed not only to elements but also to the random attentions of passersby.

Join Gallery founders and co-coordinators Frank Livingston and David Churchill, as they discuss the concept behind the gallery, the artists who donated their work to the project, and the reactions to the ideal of the gallery and to the art itself.

Frank Livingston is a Winnipeg based artist and gardener.

Dr. David Churchill, teaches history at the University of Manitoba.
