Curated exhibitions & events
Below are a selection of recent events that I have had the pleasure of curating
Philip Hoffman - Film screening & discussion
Recognized as Canada’s pre-eminent diary filmmaker, Philip Hoffman's work spans themes of memory, archive, history, and autobiography. A monumental figure in the Canadian independent film scene and recipient of the 2016 Governor General’s Award in Visual and Media Arts, Hoffman has created over 30 works in a career that has spanned nearly four decades. This screening of Hoffman's most recent works, including Slaughterhouse (2014), Aged (2014), and By the Time We Got to Expo (co-maker Eva Kolcze) (2015), was followed by a conversation with the filmmaker on the content and process for these films.
Alex Bulmer - Film screening & discussion
With the Toronto/London-based writer, filmmaker, and performer Alex Bulmer, we screened a selection of her film and television work illuminating how becoming blind has liberated her artistic voice. With humour, wit, and thoughtful attention, Bulmer's work traces themes of disability politics, inclusive representation, and her own lived experience of blindness. This screening was presented with captions and pre-recorded audio description.
The Exhausted Body
This upcoming exhibition-in-process will bring together disability-identified artists in commentary on the temporal experiences of exhaustion.
