Artists in attendance
Video Fever is Trinity Square’s annual showcase of cutting-edge video works produced by local emerging artists. Selected by a jury composed of Trinity Square staff and our Programming and Events committee, this showcase provides a glimpse of what is on the horizon of video-based practices in contemporary art. This diverse program is suffused with humour, offering personal reflections, formal explorations and theoretical musings that consider the inherited and externalized forces that shape identity, the relationships between human and nature, and what it means to turn technology on itself.
Join us for a discussion with the artists to follow the screening.
Alison Postma, Hotel (2016), still from video.
For the first time, Video Fever expands to occupy our vitrine space located on the ground floor of the 401 Richmond Street West building (located between Gallery 44 and A Space). There, find Alison Postma’s installation, Hotel (2016–2017), from 15–21 March 2017.
As part of Video Fever, Trinity Square hosts the Bachelors’ Commission, a summer-long production residency awarded to selected submitting artists to access our facilities, equipment and expertise for the creation of new works. We will be announcing this year’s recipients at the screening.
This year’s jury members included Naomi Dodds, Cody Lang, Serena Lee, Melanie Lowe, Daniella Sanader, Megan Toye and cheyanne turions.

About Trinity Square Video
Trinity Square Video is a space to re-imagine media arts.
For over 45 years, Trinity Square has been a champion of media arts practices. Our activities are guided by a goal to increase our members’ and audiences’ understanding and imagination of what media arts practices can be. Trinity Square strives to create a supportive environment, encouraging artistic and curatorial experimentation that challenges medium specificity through education, production and presentation supports.
As video-based practices have become increasingly present across disciplines, Trinity Square engages artists and curators in critical investigations into the changing conditions of perception, materiality and the virtual. In addition to holding aesthetic worth in its own right, our artistic programming extends our education and production activities in order to generate new knowledges.
Trinity Square’s programming is guided by three priorities: 1) promoting an expanded definition of media arts; 2) promoting the meaningful engagement of diverse voices in all levels of our operations; and 3) supporting and nurturing the production of new works by artists and curators. Our membership represents the diversity of the city and honours the original mandate of the organization—seeking to reduce barriers to access related to race, gender, sexual orientation, and socio-economic and physical ability.
