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

 

Hamilton Artists Inc. (The Inc.) is committed to the presentation of contemporary art and related cultural practices.

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.

Auxiliary Mirrors
Director: Sanaz Sohrabi

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?”

Terry Fox - Running to the Heart of Canada

JUNE 24 – SEPTEMBER 10, 2017

 

Terry Fox – Running to the Heart of Canada provides a look at Terry’s epic 143 day, 5,373 kilometer journey from St. John’s, Newfoundland, to Thunder Bay, Ontario. It explores Canadians’ deep and abiding affection for Terry and examines his unique place in our collective memory. Developed in partnership with the AGB and Terry Fox’s family, the exhibition begins with the impact of Terry Fox on modern Canadian life – the numerous schools, community centers, and features of the landscape named after him, the Canadian coins, stamps, and passports bearing his image. The question posed, “Who was Terry Fox?” The rest of the exhibition is the answer.

The Terry Fox – Running to the Heart of Canada exhibition is organized by the Candian Museum of History in partnership with the Terry Fox Centre.

Future Shock: A Requiem of the Past [Centre 3]

Future Shock: A Requiem of the Past (Main Gallery), July 14 - August 24, 2017

Curated by: Kiera Boult

 

Future Shock: A Requiem of the Past is a group show consisting of Centre[3]’s artist members whose work explores notions of loss and erasure in the process of progress. This exhibition challenges the viewer to consider what is left behind when we move forward? The rise of urbanization erases communities and histories, American author and Futurist Alvin Toffler describes this process as, “[a] continual evolutionary process of evacuations, demolitions, removals, temporarily vacant lots, new installations and repeat. This process is identical in principle to the annual rotation of crops[...].”

Future Shock: A Requiem of the Past aims to excavate the past and honour what has been rendered obsolete. Centre[3] is proud to exhibit our members in the Main Gallery showcasing the exceptional caliber of work our members create.

Opening Reception: July 14, 2017: 7pm-10pm (Art Crawl)
