A Video Art Screening presented by this town is small. Admission by donation.
this town is small is pleased to present Small Screen: Perspectives – A screening of experimental videos by Epekwitk (PEI)-based artists, sourced from a non-juried open call for submissions. this town is small values experimentation, and this screening features finished works, works in progress, and explorations by PEI artists. These short video art pieces centre around the theme of Perspective: “Perspective is shaped by the senses and experiences; it’s how we situate ourselves in reference to our surroundings. Perspective can form illusions – it can turn two dimensions into three in perspective drawing, a trick of the eye that alters our perception. Perspective can shift, glitch and distort. Perspective can be a viewpoint: a birds eye view, a fisheye lens, a closeup. Perspective can be shaped by identity: the relationships, culture, and history that contribute to how we experience the world.” This screening is presented in partnership with Art in the Open, and supported by the PEI Culture Action Plan through Innovation PEI.
