Invocations

From September 12 to 22, 2018, Victoria will light up with the works of six artists who will be projecting videos on to buildings, rocks and walls: artists Cooper (Ottawa), Allison Moore (Montreal), Marianne Nicolson (Victoria), France Trepanier (Victoria) and Paul Wong in collaboration with Jeffery Chong (Vancouver).

 

Each artist has selected a location and will be uncovering the story of that place through a series of images drawn from archival materials, family photos, and film and video footage. Locations include Emily Carr House, the Chinese Cemetery, and the new location for MediaNets FLUX Gallery, at 821 Fort St. All events are free and open to the public, with projections starting at 8pm and running for approximately an hour.
