MONITOR 12: Figures Pointing Outside the Frame [HAMILTON ARTISTS INC]

Outdoor Screening Series:
MONITOR 12: Figures Pointing Outside the Frame

Curated by Oliver Husain, Otty Widasari, Yuki Aditya

July 20th, 9:00 pm

Hamilton Artists Inc. is pleased to present the shorts program, MONITOR 12: Figures Pointing Outside the Frame in partnership with SAVAC. The works that make up the Figures Pointing Outside the Frame consider the peripheries of the image as significant as the content within. Whether film, video, or a still image, the technology dictates the parameters of the frame. Decisions an image-maker makes regarding the composition, duration, performance, and location further contribute to a viewer’s experience. Collaboration is formed between the technology, image maker, and subjects- though this collaboration is often expanded with elements, situations, and conditions beyond that which is scripted. In this way, the program advocates for the viewer to consider the environmental, labour, historical, economical, gendered, and social conditions that influence the constructed experience.

REALMS

Dina Hamed, Emily Hamel and Clara Laratta

July 20 – August 19
Opening Reception: July 20, 7:00 – 9:00 pm

REALMS, featuring the work of Dina Hamed, Emily Hamel and Clara Laratta engages with themes of spirituality; in this context, a phenomena identifying the ways in which the human spirit is connected. Intersectional narratives emerge through each artist’s diverse lived experiences including those of religion, culture, ethnicity, feminism, identity, biophilia and naturalism.

The works on display, despite each artist’s highly individualized approach, acknowledge how these experiences likewise contribute to a collective understanding of spiritual space. “How can our experiences tell us about ourselves and each other as inquisitive, self-reflective, and interconnected beings?”

THE MERCHANT OF VENICE [SHAKESPEARE AT THE ROCK]

Shakespeare at the Rock proudly presents: The Merchant of Venice

Money: Portia has it. Bassanio wants it. Shylock lends it. Antonio owes it. And it will cost him dearly.  Dark in its humour and bawdy in its romantic hijinks, The Merchant Of Venice takes audiences on a journey of love, mercy and (in)justice. And for the second consecutive year, celebrated director Trevor Copp (Artistic Director, Tottering Biped Theatre) and the Shakespeare at the Rock ensemble create a strikingly physical, playfully contemporary, abridged re-imagining of one of William Shakespeare’s classics.

August 14 - September 1, 2017
Monday - Friday, 7:00PM (No Saturday shows.)

Monday, August 14, 2017 (All day) to Friday, September 1, 2017 (All day)
