Performance & Screenings
Participants: Jean-Philippe Antoine, Colin Browne
Please join us at the Or Gallery for a discussion with Jean-Philippe Antoine and Colin Browne followed by a screening of Mikael Levin’s 2014 film Gowanus Broadside with sound by Antoine.
Gowanus Broadside is a portrait of the Gowanus Canal, a two-mile-long waterway that extends from the Bay of New York to the south of Brooklyn. Once a marsh and then the principle cargo port of the borough, the canal quickly became one of the most polluted bodies of water in the United States. The film follows the marginal spaces bordering the length of the canal, vestiges of a centre of economic activity, and records the spatial and sonorous qualities of the waterway’s cut into the urban space.
This event is presented in collaboration with the Charles H. Scott Gallery at Emily Carr University.
