September 16–21, 2014 At Latitude 53 Contemporary Visual Culture (10242 106 Street) and around downtown Edmonton
Visualeyez Gala: Saturday September 20 at 8:00 pm
This September, Latitude 53 presents the fifteenth annual VISUALEYEZ festival, Canada’s performance art festival. Beginning September 16, and running for the duration of one week, artists from all over the world will converge at Latitude 53 Contemporary Visual Culture and the greater downtown area of Edmonton to present performances on this years theme of movement. Curated by Latitude 53 Executive Director and festival founder Todd Janes, the festival will dive into the intricacies of movement in and around space. The artists will be investigating movement as it pertains to the environment of our city, movement as it affects one body, and the various restrictions of movement, be it social, political, environmental, or physical.
How do we become more simpatico with or in spite of the city…
—Todd Janes, Latitude 53 Executive Director
Call for Participants
The performance artists will be tackling the idea of movement differently. For artist Pam Patterson it is deeply personal as her performance ‘Brick’ explores movement with disabilities and aging. For her performance Brick, Patterson is looking for individuals who are interested in exploring disability and aging along side her in the movement-based performance(s).
