send+receive: a festival of sound in partnership with Gallery 1C03 presents

Prepare to Qualify

An installation by Clint Enns

November 23 - December 11, 2010

at Gallery 1C03

Public artist’s talk: Friday, November 26 at 12:30 p.m. in the Gallery

A circuit bent Atari filled with self-doubt struggles to qualify as "good" or "valid" art.

Clint Enns is a video artist and filmmaker from Winnipeg, Manitoba, whose work primarily deals with moving images created with broken and/or outdated technologies. His work has shown both nationally and internationally in installations, festival screenings, alternative spaces and micro-cinemas. He has recently completed a master's degree in mathematics at the University of Manitoba, and his interests include model theory of rings and modules, structuralist film, destructuralist video, and mathematics in art.

send + receive is an international festival in Winnipeg that advances the discipline of sound art, and is one of the few annual media arts festivals in North America focusing exclusively on sound-based work. It has become an invaluable opportunity for showcasing the innovative work of Manitoban, Canadian and international artists. send + receive addresses the need for a critical and intimate platform for audio based art. With feedback from the public, collaborating arts groups, and artists, send + receive meets the creative and technical needs of professional artists. This year’s festival will be presented at various venues across Winnipeg from November 23 – 28, 2010.

The Garden screens tonight at E-G Hall on campus

Together as part of the international documentary screening network Cinema Politica, Gallery 1C03 and The University of Winnipeg Students’ Association (UWSA) are pleased to present the film The Garden at Eckhardt-Gramatté Hall tonight at 7 p.m.

The fourteen-acre community garden at 41st and Alameda in South Central Los Angeles is the largest of its kind in the United States. Started as a form of healing after the devastating L.A. riots in 1992, the South Central Farmers have since created a miracle in one of the country’s most blighted neighborhoods. Growing their own food. Feeding their families. Creating a community.

But now, bulldozers are poised to level their 14-acre oasis.

Directed by Scott Hamilton Kennedy (USA, 2008), The Garden follows the plight of the farmers, from the tilled soil of this urban farm to the polished marble of City Hall. Mostly immigrants from Latin America, from countries where they feared for their lives if they were to speak out, we watch them organize, fight back, and demand answers: Why was the land sold to a wealthy developer for millions less than fair-market value? Why was the transaction done in a closed-door session of the LA City Council? Why has it never been made public? And the powers-that-be have the same response: “The garden is wonderful, but there is nothing more we can do.”
If everyone told you nothing more could be done, would you give up?

The Garden was selected for screening by the Coordinators of the UWSA Food Bank Program. A discussion will follow after the film facilitated by special guest Kathryn McKenzie of the Spence Neighbourhood Association.

All screenings will be open to all audiences Рeveryone is welcome. Our screenings will always be free, but donations to offset costs are welcome. Eckhardt-Gramatt̩ Hall is located on the third floor of Centennial Hall at The University of Winnipeg.

Gallery 1C03 and the UWSA wish to thank Cinema Politica for making it possible for us to participate in this network. We are grateful to the Canada Council for the Arts for generously supporting this initiative.

Opening of Chronochroma 6 by Rodney LaTourelle on campus

Rodney LaTourelle's site-specific public art installation "Chronochroma 6" was officially opened yesterday at The University of Winnipeg's Centennial Hall - Duckworth Centre 3rd floor corridor, with the Winnipeg-born/Berlin-based artist in attendance.
This project was the brainchild of Dr. Serena Keshavjee, Coordinator of the University's History of Art program and tireless advocate for the recognition of the University's Centennial Hall as a significant example of modernist architecture.
The University is pleased to acknowledge Number TEN Architectural Group as the title sponsor for this installation.
When you make your next trip to campus, be sure to check out "Chronochroma 6"!
