Video Pool at the WAG Celebrates Pride Month

For the Winnipeg Art Gallery’s Video Pool evening on November 19, performance artist hannah_g presents “Lateral Collateral,” a look at selected videos from Video Pool’s vast collection. The evening, which begins at 7pm, is included with the cost of WAG admission; WAG and Video Pool members free.

“Wishing to become acquainted with Video Pool's library, hannah_g began her exploration in an orderly manner, that is alphabetically, says Przemek Pysczek of Video Pool. “She has thus far viewed an eclectic electric selection from the margins of the sidelines of video from Winnipeg and beyond. This evening hannah_g and a special guest, who is himself somewhat of an outsider, will host a show-and-tell about the videos that have particularly struck her in her ongoing voyage.”

“Winnipeg’s Video Pool Media Arts Centre is home to an unbelievably rich and important resource of Canadian video and media art, but it’s a collection that rarely gets out into the public eye,” says WAG Art Educator Anna Wiebe. “In April the WAG and VP joined forces to begin a monthly series of media arts programs that bring to the fore this often under-exposed genre of art-making. Each screening features a local visual artist offering new perspectives on Video Pool’s archive and uncovering long buried gems of the video art genre.”
