PLATFORM centre is an artist-run centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba dedicated to considering the expanded role of photography in contemporary art. We are thrilled to return to /edition for 2018 to launch prints from Bridget Moser, Erika DeFreitas and Alexis Dirks as well as a Blu-Ray by Dave Dyment titled Watching Night of the Living Dead. In addition, we’ll have copies of Divya Mehra’s highly sought catalogue/artist book, Quit, India.

Dave Dyment’s Watching Night of the Living Dead
We’ll also be launching a new Blu-Ray project by Toronto artist Dave Dyment. Watching Night of the Living Dead reanimates the 1968 George Romero classic entirely using footage of characters from other films and television series watching the movie on TV or at the cinema. Dyment’s work collects these scenes and arranges them sequentially along a bed track of the original. The characters watching television will sometimes serve as surrogate zombies, staring blankly at the horror unfolding on their sets, but also mirror the protagonists in the original, where most of the plot exposition is delivered via a television news reader.

Copies of the Blu-Ray are $20, and will be available at the fair (or on our website in November). There will also be a screening of the movie at the Revue Cinema, October 29 at 7 p.m. Free admission, reserve a spot at http://revuecinema.eventbrite.ca.

Divya Mehra’s Quit, India.
Lastly, we’ll have our remaining copies of this stunning artist book/catalogue on hand. Quit, India. documents and elaborates upon Mehra’s solo exhibitions at Canadian Artist Run Centres: Turf War presented at PLATFORM in 2010 and The Party is Over, presented at Artspeak (Vancouver) in 2011. It includes essays by Amy Fung, Natasha Bissonauth and Kendra Place.

Copies can be purchased for a special fair price of $40.

Hope to see you at /edition!
