7a*md8 Live-Stream Performances in partnership with Trinity Square Video

December 14-16
Live Event December 14, 6-9pm

We are excited to present the third and last stage of our off-year project, 7a*md8 Live-Stream. Artists in 7a*md8 Live-Stream examine contemporary developments in the relationship between body, lens-based practices and the politics of access. This includes an interest in exploring notions of being simultaneously near and far across a range of social relations, thinking about access and location not only as a barrier, but indeed as a political choice. For artists working in performance, video-broadcasting platforms like YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram Live provide an instant and accessible medium for documentation and dissemination. This allows, among other possibilities, for ongoing, cumulative performance practices that can record everyday situations at home and work spaces that have not always been accessible to a general public.

Artists will present new performance works from a variety of locations across the globe live streamed at Trinity Square Video in Toronto on December 14. The performances will be documented and screened until December 16.
