Mixed tapes are not as common as they used to be. Before high-speed digital transfers, you’d compile tapes and pass them on to your friends. It was a way to gain access to otherwise inaccessible music and build a community of common interests. As curators, the mix tape is a framework for each screening we compile.
– David Poolman and Jeremy Drummond
A veritable raw mix tape, The Process of Weeding Out intrigues and investigates the intimate, raw and sometime humourous relationships of artists to their environments. Like a classic mix tape, the program flows across a varied array of ideas and approaches to the medium, creating new relationships beween the juxtaposed works.
