Free: Tiff Summer Exhibitions & Virtual Reality says
This summer, TIFF celebrates and reflects on Canada's 150th Anniversary with an exhibitions programme that looks at Canada's past and a Virtual Reality series where Indigenous artists imagine Canada's future. Join us for the FREE opening of these exhibitions this week, or drop-in before August 13th (open hours for each programme listed on the links below).


Indigenous filmmakers and artists imagine Indigenous life 150 years in the future in new VR projects. Three of these works will premiere at TIFF Bell Lightbox in June 2017, including Danis Goulet's The Hunt, Scott Benesiinaabandan's Blueberry Pie Under the Martian Sky, and Postcommodity's Each Branch Determined. The remaining works will premiere during imagineNATIVE in October 2017, also at the Lightbox.

Des cinéastes et artistes autochtones sélectionnés présentent des projets de réalité virtuelle imaginant la vie autochtone dans 150 ans. Trois de ces œuvres seront présentées pour la première fois au TIFF Bell Lightbox en juin 2017, The Hunt de Danis Goulet (image ci-dessus), Blueberry Pie Under A Martian Sky de Scott Benesiinaabandan et Each Branch Determined par Postcommodity. Les autres projets seront présentées dans le cadre d'imagineNATIVE, en octobre 2017, au Lightbox également.


Canada on Screen Installations:

Spanning from the 1960s to the 2000s, the moving-image installations on the Canada on Screen list represent a cross-section of Canadian artists' engagement with film, video and the cinematic experience.

Michael Snow's Two Sides to Every Story (1974), Stan Douglas' Overture (1986) and Vera Frenkel's The Blue Train (2012) will be shown in the main floor galleries from Thursday to Sunday, June 16 to August 13. Screenings of Rodney Graham's Two Generators (1984) will be held on June 15, July 15 and August 19. Screenings of In the Labyrinth (1967) by Roman Kroiter, Colin Low and Hugh O'Connor will be held on June 15 and on July 11, accompanied by a talk by Prof. Janine Marchessault.

Réalisées entre les années 1960 et les années 2000, les installations d'images en mouvement retenues sur la liste de Canada à l'écran sont représentatives des diverses manières dont les artistes canadiens interagissent avec le cinéma, la vidéo et l'expérience cinématographique.
