AGNES Program: Workshop (free and open to all!)

Sharlene Bamboat is a moving image and installation artist based in Tio’tia:ke/Montreal. Her practice often engages with translation, history and music, uncovering sensory and fractured ways of knowing. Sharlene and participants will have the opportunity to engage in a more intimate setting as we use this time to screen older works, as well as get a chance to showcase a new work-in-progress. We’ll gather to talk, discuss, inquire about Sharlene’s practice, and workshop ideas and strategies as we watch and listen in context. The films that will be screened are: The Wind Sleeps Standing Up and Video Home System, along with a ten-minute cut of a new film Sharlene has been working on.

Open Secret features artists Parastoo Anoushahpour (19 + 20 January)Kriss Li (9 + 10 February)Sharlene Bamboat (9 + 10 March) and Sofía Gallisá Muriente (5 + 6 April). The series of screenings and workshops take its departure from Fred Moten’s words that “poetry investigates new ways for people to get together and do stuff in the open, in secret,” and evokes cinema’s capacity to condition spaces for gathering. The double maneuver of opacity and transparency inherent in cinema’s making sets the precedent for this sort of investigation embedded in collaboration.
