Research Series Endnote Reception
Sun Mar 17 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Sunday, March 17th
2pm – 3:30 pm
Video Pool, 100 Arthur St (2nd floor)
Writer Callie Lugosi and photographer Reza Rezaï have been following the research of this year’s Artists in Residence Tanja Faylene Woloshen and Deanna Peters/Mutable Subject. Join us at our endnote reception to listen to the written essay, see the photographic work of Rezaï , and hear about the essayists’ processes of creatively responding to the themes, methodologies and choreographic research from the past two months. This intimate post-show gathering is an opportunity to discuss the research in-depth through a cross-disciplinary perspective, socialize with the artists involved in the research series, and celebrate the making of new dance works over drinks and snacks.
Through dialogue across disciplines, the endnote supports the exchange of ideas, processes, and reflective practices surrounding dance and movement-based forms and catalyzes the next stage of the artists in residence’s works in progress.
The endnote will be moderated by comedian and poet dione c. haynes.
About Reza Rezaï:
Reza Rezaï is a Winnipeg born artist and writer of Persian descent. His work as a curator was the subject of a 2016 Vice Canada documentary. He recently completed his first collection of poetry under acclaimed Franco-Manitoban author/poet Lise Gaboury-Diallo titled ishq. He is currently working towards his first solo show of conceptual art titled MEHMOON to be shown at TRUCK Contemporary Arts (Calgary) in September 2019.
About Callie Lugosi:
Callie Lugosi is a lens-based artist and award-winning journalist from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Treaty 1 territory, the traditional lands of the Anishinaabe, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota and Dene peoples, and birthplace of the Metis Nation. Their work has appeared in publications spanning North America, Australasia, and Europe.
They make use of analog and oft-times antiquated technology to create photographs. The heart of their practice centres around documenting, archiving, and carving out space for queerness in the local historical canon. In addition to a vested interest in the past, they are beginning to explore concepts of queer futurism, alternate realities, and science fiction. callielugosi.com

Resources offered include: space, equipment, artistic and administrative support, presentations, and a financial contribution. The residency can be tailored to the specific needs of the artist to best support the research. The purpose of the series is to allow for in-depth research, critical thinking, risk-taking, experimentation, collaboration, process sharing, and …play!
