Involving installations, live research, performance and radio programming, Spill is curated by Lorna Brown and presents work by Carolina Caycedo, Nelly César, Guadalupe Martinez, Teresa Montoya, Anne Riley, Genevieve Robertson, Susan Schuppli and T’uy’t’tanat Cease Wyss. Spill: Response, curated by Guadalupe Martinez, re-centres the gallery as a site for embodiment, with visiting artist César in collaboration with Riley and Wyss. Throughout the project, Spill: Radio, curated by Tatiana Mellema, will present radio episodes in collaboration with CiTR 101.9 FM.[more]
Curated by Guadalupe Martinez and part of the Spill exhibition at the Belkin (September 3–December 1, 2019), this live research and performance component brings together activists, performance artists and educators whose practices consider relationships between the body, the land and forms of pedagogy that engage with healing, love and sustainability as core to their methodologies. Spill: Response performs an extension of artists Maria Thereza Alves, Nelly César, Anne Riley, Cease Wyss and Guadalupe Martinez’s artistic practices where histories of protection of the land across the Americas may intertwine and be animated in the present. Working with a group of selected students, the artists will present their research and share their knowledge at the Belkin and surrounding locations on the unceded Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh territories.[more]
Spill: Radio is a weekly radio show and podcast that anticipates, extends and enriches the themes of the Spill exhibition. For each week of Spill, interviews, readings, performances and field recordings offer insight into artistic processes engaged with the land, territory, extraction and embodied performance. This project engages radio as a site for the relational study of ecosystems and their processes that register the hyper-financialization of the biosphere’s resources. Destabilizing vision as the privileged mode of understanding, Spill Radio seeks to practice ways of listening to the intangible, the submerged and the sensuous in order to imagine and think with our world more complexly. Spill: Radio is curated by Tatiana Mellema and is presented in collaboration with CiTR 101.9 FM. Episodes for each week of the Spill exhibition will be aired on Tuesdays at 10 am on CiTR 101.9 FM and made available for you to download.[more]
