We acknowledge that this exhibition takes place on unceded Indigenous land belonging to the Coast Salish peoples, including the territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nations.
Get ready for Digital Carnival 2018!
Prepare to discover new worlds and encounter the unexpected through more than a dozen avant-garde installations that tackle everything from the latest technology to the most pressing geopolitical issues. Participating artists range from the local (Coast Salish Territories) to the global (Bern, Switzerland), each bringing a unique perspective on the complex relationship between art, nature and technology. With Air as the central theme, this year’s exhibition explores the boundaries of the physical world through interactive installations, immersive video projections, virtual reality demos, and more.
Featuring Terrance Houle and Lisa Birke, the Featured Artist Program includes a special exhibition and performance – Different Ways. Different Ways is a collaborative multi-disciplinary, multi-media, community engaged project that weaves together new and old art forms to reimagine first encounters and to explore contemporary relations between settlers and the Indigenous community. The exhibition will be presented in the Richmond Art Gallery for a limited two-day run, with live performances starting in the gallery at 8pm each night, and an artist talk at 4pm on Saturday, September 1.
From August 31 to September 1, experience one of the most unique multimedia extravaganzas in the Lower Mainland as part of the 2018 Richmond World Festival!
Presented by Cinevolution Media Arts Society in partnership with Richmond Art Gallery.
