Brett Kashmere

"We Do Not Remember, We Rewrite History"

Writer, curator, and media artist Brett Kashmere grew up playing hockey on the Canadian Prairie. He will present a screening of recent work, including: Valery's Ankle (2006), an essay film that databases examples from a history of of Canadian hockey to critique personal violence as international aggression: and Unfinished Passages (2005), a poetic landscape film which, for Kashmere is "a small monument to my great-grandfather Fred Elkington, prairie homesteader and giver of consciousness."

Laylah Ali
Paintings and Drawings

Laylah Ali's work explores power dynamics and interpersonal conflict through compositions that position culturally, racially and sexually ambiguous figures in precarious, loaded, and unexpectedly humorous situations. Ali uses concise—even minimal—imagery that is specific in rendering and intent. While there are narratives in Ali's work, they are stories whose open spaces often give them the atmosphere of fables.
