Say hello to our new Curator in Residence: Amanda Shore

The Centre for Art Tapes is excited to announce Amanda Shore as our new Curator in Residence! Amanda will be beginning with us this month and working on putting together an exhibition until March 2017.

Amanda’s project showcases artists who create new—often indecipherable—communication methods in situations where coherent language proves to be insufficient. Through sound and video, artists experiment with babble, song, free-form poetry, and soundless closed-captioning to a point where language unravels into its basic units of measurement—sound and silence.

CFAT is closed for Remembrance Day

We will be closed on Friday, November 11th for Remembrance Day. All weekend bookings will need to be picked up on Thursday November 10th. CFAT will also be closed to the public on Wednesday, November 16th.

My Life So Far is the story of a young Haitian Canadian returning to her native country to rediscover her culture. The film follows her struggles and successes as an athlete and her transformation into an independent young woman. My Life So Far was the winner of the Best Atlantic Short Documentary at the Atlantic Film Festival.
