Video Fever says
Trinity Square is proud to present our fifth annual screening showcase of emerging video artists from undergraduate programs in Toronto and the surrounding area.

Featuring works by Maria Patricia Abuel, Natalie Castrogiovanni, Abedar Kamgari, Vivienne Lane, Alison Postma, Jessie Sheng, Jasmeet Sidhu, Alexandru Stratulat, Erin Whittier and Kelly Zantingh.

"Video Fever" is Trinity Square’s annual showcase of cutting-edge video works produced by local emerging artists. Selected by a jury composed of Trinity Square staff and our Programming and Events committee, this showcase provides a glimpse of what is on the horizon of video-based practices in contemporary art. This diverse program is suffused with humour, offering personal reflections, formal explorations and theoretical musings on the inherited and externalized forces that shape identity, on the relationship between human and nature, and on what it means to turn technology on itself.

The "Video Fever" screening is complemented by Alison Postma’s installation, Hotel (2016–2017), presented in Trinity Square’s vitrine space. On view from 15–21 March 2017.

As part of "Video Fever," Trinity Square hosts the Bachelors’ Commission, a summer-long production residency awarded to selected submitting artists to access our facilities, equipment and expertise for the creation of new works. We will be announcing this year’s recipients at the screening.

This year’s jury members included Naomi Dodds, Cody Lang, Serena Lee, Melanie Lowe, Daniella Sanader, Megan Toye and cheyanne turions.
