MediaNet is pleased to present an exhibition of works by local media artists at this year’s Integrate Art Crawl.
Time: 6-9pm Saturday August 29
location: MediaNet’s Flux Media Art Gallery, #110 – 2750 Quadra St.
Beer and wine cash bar
A bus will be available to take people to various Integrate Art Crawl locations, and will come to MediaNet at approximately 7:45pm Saturday night.
MediaNet will not be participating in the Sunday bike crawl.
Inside the Flux Gallery, we will be showing Yoko Takashima and Ruby Arnold’s installationBridge over Troubled Water.
Bridge Over Troubled Water is an interactive video and sound installation project.
37 singers volunteered to perform the classic Simon and Garfunkel song, including friends and family of the artists, choir groups, members of the theatre community, semi-professionals, and professionals, in a variety of age groups. The collage of singers is backed by moving images of ambiguous hybrid landscapes, which act as visual metaphors of our modern reality, encompassing anxiety, horror and hope.
The piece was created in part in the Flux Gallery, and originally mounted at the Legacy Gallery in Victoria. For more info take a look at the Legacy Gallery Brochure http://uvac.uvic.ca/gallery/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/Brochure-FINAL.pdf
If you are unable to attend the Art Crawl, there will be a reception at Flux Gallery for this work on September 3.
During Integrate we will also present works by our members on a large screen in the foyer of the Dance Victoria building. Works include:
Scott Amos – Primordial Soup and Flypaper
Kirk Schwartz – Bluebridge Biospheric
