Damn, sounds like I really should have gotten in touch with this Shinobu Akimoto for Canadian Style. But then again, there’s always CS2!
The third and final installment of Videoart Channel’s V-lounge opening series “Canadian Video Art Channel vol.3” will be held at Tokyo Wonder Site in Shibuya on Friday, March 24th, at 7:00pm.
On this evening, in conjunction with Videoart Center Tokyo, Toronto based Japanese artist, Shinobu Akimoto will give a lecture on the approaches to the medium by contemporary Canadian artists along side a programme of selected work entitled “Sometimes we make it, sometimes we use it, and a lot of times, we hang out for it.” Ms. Akimoto originally had curated this programme in the spring of last year at the invitation of the gallery in Nagoya for the Canadian component of the gallery Video Award/Exhibition last July.
Included are award winning video works by Akimoto, Matthew Evans, Emily Vey Duke and Cooper Battersby, Maura Doyle and Tony Romano, Jean-Paul Kelly, Sandy Plotnikoff and Tanya Read. (Shift Blog)
