Changing Times, Time Changes
Canadian Experimental Films and Videos of the 1990s

Changing Times, Time Changes
Changing Times, Time Changes

11 Mar 2002 – 25 Mar 2002

"In experimental work, time is almost tangible; it has substantial value," says filmmaker Gerda Cammaer. Accordingly, her selection highlights works in which time is used to create a physical experience, presented as a theme, or treated as a receptacle in which to collect images. The intimate, personal and self-reflective tone of these films and videos contrasts with the grand discursive scope of 1980s media art.

Introduced by Cammaer and visiting artists, the series includes film and video by Louise Bourque, Nelson Hendriks, Mike Hoolboom, and Barbara Sternberg, among many others.
