FADO E-LIST (October 2021)

 

FADO TO WATCH: Archival Alchemy® with Joyce LeeAnn

 

On September 21, FADO co-hosted a conversation with artist and archivist Joyce LeeAnn. This engagement was presented in community with Jess Dobkin’s Wetrospective (AGYU exhibition, September 2–26).

 

Joyce LeeAnn is a certified archivist, an interdisciplinary artist, and the founder of Archival Alchemy®. As an archivist, she has worked for a community archive, a corporate archive, a large public library, and a prestigious museum. However, her archival praxis began as a young girl, and as an act of decolonization she centers her innate methods. Through her artistic projects, she is creating an archive of everything that she has conquered and is overcoming. This is the essence of Archival Alchemy®. Created in 2017 and cultivated directly from Joyce LeeAnn’s practice, Archival Alchemy® is a small business that supports institutions and artists to activate and enrich archives.

 

You can watch the archived talk on the AGYU website HERE.

ABOUT CINDY BAKER

Cindy Baker is a contemporary artist based in Western Canada whose work engages with queer, gender, race, disability, fat, and art discourses. Committed to ethical community engagement and critical social enquiry, Baker's interdisciplinary research-based practice draws upon 25 years working, volunteering, and organizing in the communities of which she is part. She moves fluidly between the arts, humanities, and social sciences, emphasizing the theoretical and conceptual over material concerns. Baker holds an MFA from the University of Lethbridge where she received a SSHRC grant for her research in performance in the absence of the artist's body; she has exhibited and performed across Canada and internationally. Helping found important community and advocacy organizations over the course of her career, Baker continues to maintain volunteer leadership roles across her communities.

Slowness and the Institution: Doing Research Differently

Speaking with one person at a time, about one significant element in their work, the format of the series favours a slow, and expansive approach, offering a generous space of collective reflection—between our guest, the hosts, and the audience.

Registration for each discussion will close one hour prior to start time (EST).

Curatorial Statement by Carron Little

In reflection of Out of Site's move online during the pandemic we have observed the importance of centering public space in the work. In doing so we continue to respond in relation to public site and facilitate unexpected encounters with a random publics. Working in the local contexts in which we live and inhabit. The unique relationship that can happen through these intimate encounters has the capacity to occur on a personal level for each artist in conjunction with the possibility for a random encounter with a virtual publics/audience? As we continue to reflect on the impact that can happen with a random publics, I am excited to share the work of these four artists. In a reflective dialogue with our community, we remain committed to creating a network and platform for experimental practices prioritizing marginalized voices from around the world.

Crossing

October 1–10, 2021

Dnipro, Ukraine

 

The project Crossing is a framework for encounters, to create the confidence to engage in a collaborative process without giving up one's own sovereignty. An openness to a diversity that allows an unselfish collaboration, in which everyone acts self-responsibly in their own way with their own qualities. In this way, we strive to engage the local community in dialogue. What could be imagined through performative and collaborative bodies? Through a 10-day residency, we will create a space for collaboration, research, and exchange. The resulting experiences will be presented in group performances in public spaces.

7. WORKSHOP: Site + Time Workshop: Public Performance with Martine Viale

Date: October 8–11, 2021; Location: on-line; Source: Carron Little

 

Site + Time Workshop: Public Performance with Martine Viale

 

Dates: October 8–11, 2021 (four session at 90 mins each)

Time: 11am–12:30pm CT (18:00–19:30 ECT)

Fee: $250 US (4 workshop sessions at 90 mins each + solo tech training)

Limited to 10 places only

 

In this public performance workshop by Martine Viale participants will work with the theme the body and public space, this workshop will be addressing different ways to connect with time and space while using the body as a place of research. In addition to the workshop session Carron Little will provide one on one live stream training to enable the sharing of public performance in the workshop sessions.

 

Through quotidian experiments in the public sphere, we will work on creating open methodologies in which daily encounters could also be part of the art’s strategies. How does places inform our functioning and vice versa? How do we respond to our surroundings and how does it transform our bodies? In these times of uncertainty what is our connection to the body, to others and to art in the public space? How to sustain meaningful actions in a constantly changing environment?  

 

Developing simple concepts and a sensitive approach to the territory, we will work with the unlimited possibilities of transformation offered through continual negotiation processes, whether spatial, physical or emotional as basic material for the development of actions.  Possible themes that will be approached and discussed are: site responsive, gestural repertoires of places, body as site, imprints, working with scores, interrelation between personal spaces and shared spaces, transcriptions...

 

Approaching infiltrating practices, minimal movements and cohabitation between presence and absence, we will also be looking at how duration can transform our vision and inform the directions of our actions. Through fine observations and exercises designed to broader our sense of attention, we will be integrating different possibilities of exploring intimacy with ourselves and with places. Working with several durations and concepts the workshop will focus largely on site-specific actions as research on space and will attempt to outline the unseen poetic potential in the most ordinary contexts.

Established in 1993, FADO Performance Art Centre is a not-for-profit artist-run centre based in Toronto, Canada. FADO provides a stage and on-going forum in support of the research and development of contemporary performance art practices in Canada and internationally. As a year-round presentation platform FADO presents the work of local, national and international artists who have chosen performance art as a primary medium to create and communicate provocative new images and perspectives.

LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT
FADO acknowledges that as settlers, we are not the first people to gather, live and work on the land where we currently operate and present our activities, currently referred to as the city of Toronto.

We work and live here in the spirit of the traditional treaty—the Dish with One Spoon treaty between the Anishinaabe, Mississaugas and Haudenosaunee—that binds and protects the land.
