Flaming Creatures: New Tendancies in Canadian Video
January 29, 2000 - April 16, 2000
Flaming Creatures: New Tendencies in Canadian Video is a program os seventeen video artowkrs by fifteen contemporary Canadian artists. The works have been separated into six different programs, which can be selected and screened by visitors.
In Flaming Creatures, guest curator Gary Kibbins identifies a number of new directions or “tendancies” in contemporary Canadian video art. Kibbins describes some of these directions as being: humor with a strategically built-in flaw, or “not-necessarily-funny” humor; “irreducible” experiences that temporarily confuse interpretation; and, most importantly, “an attitude to life and art beyond a prevailing condition of cynicism.”
