Two Days at the Falls

September 28, 2016, 8:30pm - October 1, 2016, 9:00pm

In Two Days at the Falls, Isabell Spengler (Germany) juxtaposes two identical 360-degree pan shots of the iconic Niagara Falls in a double projection. One of the shots was filmed when Spengler visited the falls for the first time and found them partially frozen. The other was made before her trip in a three-dimensional model that Spengler built in her studio and that represents a distillation of all the ideas and ascriptions from illustrations, texts, interviews, films and digital replicas that have contributed to her personal image of the place. In her juxtaposition of video images of the fictive and real Niagara Falls, Isabell Spengler examines the interaction between reality and imagination, between popular culture and private perception and between the monumental and the everyday in the context of the present ubiquity of media technologies. Commissioned by the Goethe-Institut Toronto & Images Festival Toronto & Trinity Square Video Toronto as part of the European Media Art Network Exchange with Australia and Canada 2015. Supported by the Culture Programme 2013 of the European Commission and the Goethe-Institut. Presented in partnership with Gurevich Fine Art.

St. Paul’s College Tour, University of Manitoba

October 5, 2016, 7:00pm - October 5, 2016, 10:00pm

Please join us for a free tour of this stunning mid-century College, opened in 1958 to facilitate Catholic education within the University of Manitoba campus. The various brick wings converge together at Christ the King Chapel with exquisite exterior and interior walls that are dramatically sheathed in turquoise mosaic tile. The Chapel itself is absent of pillars and the design is like the Arc de Triomphe. The original architectural style proposed by Peter Thornton was maintained throughout the complex. Throughout the building there are works of unique art by Winnipeg craftsman and goldsmith Ludwig Nickel. The College also features a distinctive tall Belltower whose official first peal occurred on New Year’s Eve 1967 and was broadcast over the CBC. The Tower serves as a local landmark and tolls the quarter-hour across campus. After the tour the College’s Dean of Studies will host tea and treats in Hanley Hall. Parking is free at this time in “Q” lot across Dysart Road. Meet inside the front doors
