a NOT SENT LETTERS SET by JEREMY TODD in collaboration w/ BEN WILSON & NIKOLAI GAUER

JEREMY TODD presents a new NOT SENT LETTERS SET in collaboration w/ BEN WILSON & NIKOLAI GAUER. The work incorporates performance, projections, live scoring, reading and play, with letters to The Creative Classes, Willing Conflators Of Oliver Twist And Jeremy Todd, and All Other Accidental Bohemians, selected from the project archive.

 

DAMLA TAMER (an artist interested in the artistic-political stakes of encountering singular events, forgetting them, and then letting them reconfigure in relation to other forms of representation) provides narration for a legless, carved-out table (once university property) that has gone through various modifications vis-à-vis successive institutional and/or artistic re-presentations.

SARAH SHAMASH (a Vancouver-based artist and interdisciplinary doctoral student) returns to NSL&G to debut Slideshow, an ode to Janet Cardiff, Gloria, creativity, life, and everything in-between.

Hosted By
DYNAMO ARTS ASSOCIATIONSuite 103 – 30 East 6th Ave, Vancouver
