Opening Reception Thursday 14 March at 8 pm
To say that the paintings of Montreal based artist Pierre Dorion are Minimalist works only tells one side of the story; to say that they are objective Realist paintings also tells just one side. But they are both; they also are imbued with sentiments of loss, memory, presence, and an ambiguous unreality that actually is based on the artist’s own photographs.
Halifax-based interdisciplinary artist William Robinson employs video, performance, sculpture, drawing and other media to investigate the culture of sound and social architecture. He has exhibited nationally and internationally, having shown in New York, Bergen and Berlin, as well as in Toronto at Nuit Blanche and in Halifax at Nocturne. His practice is conceptually based, often rooted in intimate encounters and immediate experiences.
Fri., March 1, 5 p.m.

SCREENINGS TUESDAYS AT 8 PM. FREE ADMISSION
5 February - The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975
Göran Olsson, Sweden, 2011, 100 minutes. Frank interviews and footage of major post-Martin Luther King African-American figures such as Angela Davis, Stokely Carmichael and Bobby Seale, conducted by sympathetic Swedes for European broadcast, make for an astonishing time capsule and blast of hidden history.
12 February - Story of a 3-Day Pass
The French New Wave changed the cinema completely, from how we make movies to how we watch them. Initiated by film critics from the magazine Cahiers du Cinéma, the Nouvelle Vague led to films shot on the cheap about contemporary subjects on one hand, while playfully re-imagining genres such as Science Fiction and musicals on the other.
Thursday 17 January at 8 pm
