EXHIBITION: “Residency in RMB City“
December 4, 2010-January 14, 2011
Gendai Gallery, 6 Garamond Court, Toronto
Opening Reception: Saturday, December 4, 2-5pm
Manifesting inside Gendai space at the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre and the on-line virtual world Second Life simultaneously, Residency in RMB City is a virtual residency programme intertwining with an actual exhibition, staged to experience, reflect, and agitate the contingencies and resistances around the thresholds of the virtual and the actual in response to the augmented reality our everyday inhabits.
Three proposals originally developed for Chinese artist Cao Fei’s RMB City in Second Life are put forward by Toronto-based artist/architect, Adrian Blackwell;artist, Yam Lau; and the collaborative team GestureCloud: Judith Doyle + Fei Jun. These interventions are predicated on three distinctive thematic inquiries into the actuality of this virtual city: architecture and urban development with Adrian Blackwell, the aesthetics of time, space and image with Yam Lau, and labour and production through the lens of art and technology with GestureCloud.
Join Gendai and the exhibiting artists for a fun opening and sweet refreshments!
ARTIST TALK: with Adrian Blackwell, Yam Lau, and collective, GestureCloud: Judith Doyle + Fei Jun (with Ken Leung and Ian Murray)
