Regional Support Network presents: BOARD and BREAD
Moving Image Works from London and Thereabouts
Thursday April 23, 2015 / 7-9 PM / 5$ or PWYC
The PlayGround / 207 King Street / London ON
LOMAA is pleased to host Regional Support Network (Clint Enns and Leslie Supnet) as the ninth participant in its Visiting Artist Program. During their stay Enns and Supnet will discuss their screening series, which aims to support regional artistic communities. Additionally, RSN will present a program of works originally commissioned in early 2015 and screened at Videofag in Toronto. The program features moving image works from current and past London residents. Some of the artists will be in attendance.
RSN is a nomadic screening series started in Toronto, Ontario out of a desire to show experimental moving images from other cities unmediated by a Toronto curatorial lens. Explicitly, the work is not curated by RSN as we invite curators from other areas to present work from their community. The only condition is that the curator must be an active member of their community and that they must present their own work in the program. Through RSN we are attempting to challenge a culture of moving image curation in Toronto, a place that we feel is in need of a paradigm shift away from old routines. The oppressive conservatism we struggle with politically in our day to day lives, we see in our community of experimental moving images and must be challenged with at least another voice to speak alongside the dominant ways of working. In addition, we are hoping to challenge Toronto moving-image aesthetics by allowing work to show that may offend our sensibilities, both in terms of content and form. What we desire is evolution.
