The Centre for Art Tapes is proud to partner with the South Asian Visual Art Centre to present Monitor 12: Figures Pointing Outside the Frame. This collection of short videos has been curated by Toronto-based curator and artist Oliver Husain as well as Jakarta-based programmers Otty Widasari and Yuki Aditya.
The screening will be immediately followed by a discussion between Rajee Paña Jeji Shergill, CFAT Programming Committee member and SAVAC member, and Sanaz Sohrabi, one of the featured video artists.
The Centre for Art Tapes is a not for profit artist-run, charitable, organization that facilitates and supports artists at all levels working with electronic media including video, audio, and new media.
CFAT provideS services to a diverse membership, and the general public, that include production facilities, ongoing exhibitions and screenings. THEY ALSO provide programs that offer, through training and in-house residencies, opportunities for individuals to critically engage with cultural and social issues. The Centre is a creative environment for individuals as well as groups to pursue independent work at the highest levels of artistic practice.
Designed to provide artists with access to a broad range of production facilities, CFAT is able to foster training and mentoring programs for members of the community.
SAVAC (South Asian Visual Arts Centre) is a non-proﬁt, artist-run centre in Canada dedicated to developing and supporting the work and visibility of culturally diverse artists.
SAVAC promoteS self-representation by developing artistic practice that is often informed by cultural identity through a range of mediums, aesthetics, forms, and techniques. THE CENTRE supportS work that (in)directly addresses the ways histories of people of colour are represented alongside the story of ongoing colonialism on Turtle Island and post-colonial histories of the global south. These works are challenging, experimental and offer multifarious perspectives on the contemporary world.
For over 20 years, SAVAC has operated without a gallery space as an explicit, political choice. Instead, THE CENTRE partnerS with galleries, institutions and museums to integrate artists and curators of colour into the curatorial and programming practices of those institutions.
