Madelyne Beckles, Theory of the Young Girl, 2017

VIEW VTAPE PROGRAMS ON OUR WEBSITE!
RECEPTION AND LAUNCH

The Commons, 401 Richmond, 4th floor
Tuesday, November 20, 2018
6:00pm

Please join us for a celebration of Vtape’s newest audience outreach project. The Vtape On-Line Gallery gives audiences around the world a chance to see some of the beautifully guest-curated programs that we regularly present at Vtape.

The inaugural program to be made available on-line is Autotheory, which was guest curated by Lauren Fournier and screened at Vtape on May 8, 2018. This carefully constructed program weaves together multigenerational voices into a complex and joyous conversation. Fournier has said that this screening “…takes performance for video as a ripe space to reflect on the aesthetics, politics, and ethics of “auto-theory”…”. Lauren Fournier’s extended essay “Autotheory and Artists’ Video: Performing Theory, Philosophy, and Art Criticism in Canadian and Indigenous Video Art, 1968-2018” is now posted on the Vtape website.

Autotheory: the screening will be available on the Vtape website Nov 20 – Dec 20, 2018.
