At the Heart of a Sparrow: Videos by Barry Doupé

Thursday, October 25, 2007, 6pm Barry Doupé in person! The unnervingly seductive videos of Vancouver-based artist and animator Barry Doupé blend painterly skill with the look of early 3D video games in gothic dreamscapes, at once familiar and forever out of reach. Pegged as one of Canada’s rising stars, with screenings across North America and […]

Siamese-hearts pump hamburgers and butterflies, voracious Pac-Men hunt flocks of weeping eyeballs, and frogs belch Smurf-like red-and-white mushrooms. Funny and tragic by turns, Lockhart’s films mix knowingly-naïve hand-drawn characters with […]

Nothing Compares 2 U: Films & Videos by Michael Robinson

Thursday, September 27, 2007, 6pm Michael Robinson in person! The films and videos of Michael Robinson are a deft mix of stunning beauty and nervy wit. He combines lush, often optically-printed imagery with the electric fuzz of video-games, old movie footage, and dusty magazine layouts in pop song–scored cine-ballads that are at once cynical and […]
