Saturday, November 3rd, 2012
screening at 12:30 pm @Cinematheque, 100 Aurthur*
artist talk at 4:30 pm @aceartinc.**

Hagere Selam (shimby) Zegeye-Gebrehiwot uses super 8 and 16mm film to explore narratives of diaspora, distance and longing. Themes of gender, queerness and family are ongoing in their work.
*wheelchair accessible venue and washrooms
**regretfully not fully accessible. there is a set of stairs into the building but there is an elevator inside the main entrance to take people to the second floor gallery space.
Thanks to Manitoba Culture, Heritage and Tourism and the generous support of Pattison Outdoor Advertising ace will have ads inside 135 City of Winnipeg buses for the next month and a half. Seven different quotes taken from critical responses to work exhibited over the past 30 years in the gallery have been printed and installed for your pleasure. Can you find them all? And more importantly, what do you think about the quotes, the gallery and contemporary art by emerging artists being presented in our city? We would like to invite you to respond to these ads and begin a dialogue in keeping with the second decade of the 21st century.

a poetic of inhabited space created by Michelle Elrick
Notes from the Fort is a series of performance installations that create intimate places in unfamiliar environments through the play act of fort building. Using only existing structures and a suitcase full of hand-crafted materials, each fort is constructed, inhabited noted and dismantled in a live poetic document of sense of place and the origins of home.
Featuring music by Jenny Berkel, David Simard & Brie Neilson & new poetry by Michelle Elrick.
The gallery will be open until midnight during Nuit Blanche, come and check out Doug Smith’s “Catharsis”
