Get on the Bus to see “Lost Secrets of the Royal”
FREE Contemporary Art Bus Tour
Sunday, November 27, 12 to 5pm
Following tours at the Justina M. Barnicke Gallery (7 Hart House Circle) and University of Toronto Art Centre (15 King’s College Circle), bus departs for the Blackwood Gallery to visit the “Lost Secrets of the Royal” Exhibition
The Lost Secrets of the Royal project is a commissioning initiative of the Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto (LIFT) and the Toronto Reel Asian International Film Festival working with four contemporary Asian-Canadian artists to produce media works for the gallery setting. The discussions leading to this project originate with Colin Geddes’ donation of an archive of incomplete and decaying 35mm Hong Kong films salvaged from the basement of what is now Toronto’s Royal Cinema. The only stipulation for Geddes’ donation of this trove of orphaned reels was that they became the source for remaking, transforming and plundering into new works.
The projects realized within this commission are Cindy Mochizuki’s Yokai and Other Spirits with Daïchi Saïto’s Never A Foot Too Far, Even at the Blackwood Gallery and soJin Chun’s Officer Tuba Meets the Happy Ghost with Louise Noguchi’s Snake’s Shadow at A Space Gallery from November 9 – December 11, 2011.
