Experimental Film Development Workshop With Gabi Dao And Terrance Houle
Join artists Gabi Dao and Terrance Houle for this special hands-on film development workshop. Attendees will have the chance to explore analog film development processes to conjure otherworldly images.
Attendees will meet at the Gallery for the workshop introduction. From there, participants will pair up to photograph around Downtown Lethbridge using provided film cameras. The film will then be developed at Casa using the artists’ experimental emulsions and sound-based photo development techniques. There will be a 30 minute break during the workshop and snacks will be provided. The photos will be compiled into a collaborative film to be screened at the end of the workshop.
This workshop is $10 to attend or free for Gallery members. Attendance is limited and registration is required. Please register through EventBrite. A limited number of complimentary tickets are held for Deaf and/or hard of hearing guests. ASL interpretation and other accommodations will be provided. If you have any questions please contact Heather Kehoe, Program & Event Coordinator.
ASL interpretation services and accessibility accommodations are available for this event by request. If you require an interpreter, please contact us two days before the event so that we may book an interpreter.
Gabi Dao is an artist and organizer currently based in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Dao’s research-based practice culminates in collage, sculpture, sound and moving image installations. They also generate olfactory experiences in both their installations and their small-batch perfume business, PPL’S PERFUME. Through non-linear conceptions of memory, time and truth, Dao confronts Western ocularcentrism and the rigid binarism of capitalism. Dao also engages with writing and community building in their work. See their work in the Gallery: What breaks on the horizon?
