Isolated Landscapes:

Video by Prairie Women (1984-2009)

November 3 to December 1, 2017

Video Pool Media Arts Centre announces the exhibition Isolated Landscapes: Video by Prairie Women (1984-2009), curated by Kathy Rae Huffman. In development for over a year, the project will have four components: A physical Exhibition; an online exhibition; a series of public Gatherings; and a touring screening series in 2018.

Isolated Landscapes: Video by Prairie Women (1984-2009) is a major exhibition of the history of video art by women who live and work in the central Canadian region, or who have been informed by years of residing in (or growing up in) the region. The nineteen works in the exhibition (by twenty-one artists) were produced between 1984 -2009 and play a prominent role in the history of Winnipeg’s legendary Video Pool Media Arts Centre. The project represents pioneering, early video art production by women artists working in various genres, reveals their ability to utilize the available technology of the time, and many works respond to the region’s isolation and starkness, revealed in geographical, cultural and personal landscapes.
