On November 25, Forest City Gallery, an artist-run centre located in London, ON, launches their annual publication, What is Left? What is Right?, with an evening of presentations from contributors and a short film program.
Caroline Monnet’s IKWÉ, in distribution with the WFG, is one of 8 films by contemporary Canadian artists selected for the screening.
As Forest City Gallery explains of the film program:
With similar concerns of representation and identity raised in the gallery exhibition, artists in the What is Left? What is Right? video program exact these concerns in differing ways. Exploring and challenging the elements of narrative and performance, artists in the screening are able to utilize the structures of storytelling and performance to add layers and complexity to these multifaceted issues. A snapshot of ways in which Canadian artists visualize these issues, the works in What is Left? What is Right? challenge us to consider the complexities of time, space, histories, and land as we make sense of how matters of identity are not only formed but also how they continually shift.
