Correspondance / Correspondence at The Holden Gallery, Manchester 17 October 2020 Entrance is free — Visit now

Vidéographe in Montreal and the Holden Gallery in Manchester present Correspondance / Correspondence – a film screening programme which pairs artists from both cities. It is free to stream via Vidéographe’s YouTube channel.

A transatlantic transmission crossing oceans and traversing time zones, this online screening event pairs artists films and videos from the City of Saints with those forged from the home of the industrial revolution. These video correspondences encourage dialogue between the cities by coupling two distinct artistic visions and placing them next to each other – one moving image artwork from each city. Although the works were informed by unique sets of cultural and sociopolitical circumstances, through this alignment we can draw new connections between them, revealing important differences and surreal similarities. Join for the online screening, a live ‘event’ complete with Q&As, live chat and a diverse range of moving images artworks, guaranteed to be something for everyone.

The programme is curated by Sam Meech and Clint Enns, and presents works by: Jenny Baines, Nathalie Bujold, Jean-François Caissy, Clara Cassian, Miryam Charles, Charles-André Coderre, Maxime Corbeil-Perron, Kevin Craig, Chris Paul Daniels, Rachel Echenberg, Rob Feulner, Rowland Hill & Hannah Buckley, Jenny Holt, Nick Jordan, Naqqash Khalid, Antoine Larocque & Antoine Provencher, Félix Lamarche, Sofia Marincic, Caroline Monnet, Emma Roufs, Skawennati, Chester Tenneson, TV Babies, and Raz Ullah.
