Workshops: Artist Talk and Workshops, 35th Rhubarb Festival

As part of The 35th Rhubarb Festival, Buddies and our partner organizations are hosting a bunch of artist talks and workshops with festival artists – and most of it is totally free!

SHOW AND TELL LUNCHES
Every Thursday and Friday afternoon, join Rhubarb artists for some creative brainstorming, show and tell, and process sharing. BYOL stands for Bring Your Own Lunch.

ARTIST TALK: HEATHER CASSILS Thursday, February 13 at 6:30 at Buddies
Join internationally-celebrated performance artist Heather Cassils for a conversation about the artist’s vast body of work, performance practice, and the inspirations and process behind Becoming an Image – presented at the opening night of Rhubarb.

co-presented by The 35th Rhubarb Festival, Pleasure Dome and Trinity Square Video in association with The Art Gallery of York University and VTape.

CASSILS: COMPOSITIONS Opening Reception: Saturday, February 15, 4-6pm at Trinity Square Video
Cassils: Compositions presents a selection of Cassils’ work, the centrepiece of which will be an installation of time-based works triggered in sequence, which choreograph the viewing experience. The installation manipulates the physical conditions of image, space, sound and spectacle to compose fluid conceptions of identity formation that revolt against stability and specificity. Drawing on conceptualism, feminism, body art, gay male aesthetics, and Hollywood cinema, Cassils creates a visual language that is at once emotionally striking and conceptually incisive. In this cohesive body of work, a fierce passion is performed through meticulous precision and principled determination.

Exhibit runs until March 15.
