xpanded Cinema Group Exhibition at Nocturne 2016
On the evening of Nocturne Art At Night 2016 (Saturday October 15th, 6pm – 12am), the Atlantic Filmmakers Cooperative is presenting six expanded cinema installations at the Bus Stop Theatre. This group exhibition is the culmination of the five month intensive residency program Expanded Cinema Summer.
Using various materials such as VHS video, Super 8, 16mm and 35mm film, these six artists explore cinema beyond the traditional theatrical setting. The works variously explore the body as archive, micro/macro affinities, familial inheritance, geographies and inherent imperfections of process and learning.
Artists featured include Rena Thomas, Rajee Paña Jeji Shergill, Ursula Handleigh, Kira Daube, Herb Theriault and TJ Ediger.
The Bus Stop Theatre is located at 2203 Gottingen Street.
Expanded Cinema Summer program and exhibition is made possible through the generous support of the Canada Council for the Arts.
