Please join me at the 2014 Female Eye Film Festival and photography exhibition, launching at Artscape, 180 Shaw Street, Toronto, on June 17 from 7 pm to midnight. My film screens at the Royal Cinema, 608 College Street, Toronto, 2 pm on Saturday, June 21.
This exhibition is the culmination of a 10-year photographic documentation of a particular view from my home on Toronto’s waterfront, facing north. In the decade between 2004 to 2014, the visible landscape has changed tremendously, as a once wide view of the city gradually becomes an increasingly enclosed space.
A new double issue of The Goose is here! Published by the Association for Literature, Culture, and Environment in Canada, this journal of great environmental writing and images features my review (page 197) of Jan Conns’ brilliant poetry text, Edge Effects (Brick Books, 2012). The Goose is available free online.
Here is a link to an interview I recently did with Mike Hoolboom for his arts history project. It includes many photographs and details on my early (1980s!) arts activities with The Funnel, a collective of experimental filmmakers and interdisciplinary artists. http://mikehoolboom.com/?p=12552
Mike’s site has many fantastic artist interviews, images, and cultural writings.
