The Communism of Forms: Sound + Image + Time - The Strategy of Music Video

TORONTO.- The Communism of Forms: Sound + Image + Time – The Strategy of Music Videos is a fluid exhibition whose first presentation (Galeria Vermelho, São Paulo, 2007) has been remixed and restaged to resonate in the Toronto context. Containing over 50 international works, the playlist has been edited, with some works dropped out, others added, and new works specifically commissioned for Toronto. The exhibition itself is divided between two venues - the Art Gallery of York University (AGYU) and downtown at Red Bull 381 Projects - and has insinuated itself into this year's Images Festival. While we have maintained the spirit of the original presentation, here, we also present exhibition strategies akin to the strategies employed in the works themselves, to create another "communism of forms." At AGYU, a series of seven programs - Black Album, Flipside, Replay I, Replay II (a selection of work by Iain Forsyth + Jane Pollard), MyTube, After Party I (a program of work by the nomadic collective assume vivid astro focus), and After Party II - functions as an archive of various themes in the history of artists' music video while Red Bull 381 Projects features newly commissioned work and installations that diverge from specific reference to the genre to form new iterations of the interplay between sound, image, and time. The mash-up between the venues (i.e., AGYU and Red Bull 381 Projects) is also present inside the exhibition with an intervention programmed by the Images Festival of Ming Wong's Lerne Deutsch mit Petra Von Kant (Learn German with Petra Von Kant), 2007. Wong's installation, in the midst of the AGYU's exhibition, not only provides a filmic counterpoint to the themes taken up by artists working in the music video genre but also provides another dimension to the viewers' experience of the exhibition itself.

List of Artists: assume vivid astro focus, Bani Abidi, Bad Beuys Entertainment, Márcio Banfi, Laura Belém, David Blandy, Daniel Borins, Bull.Miletic, Miguel Calderón (Los Super Elegantes), Cocoon, Marilá Dardot + Cinthia Marcelle, Dennis Day, Fabio Faria, Chelpa Ferro, Iain Forsyth + Jane Pollard, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Rodney Graham, Maki Guerzi, Mike Hansen, The Histrionics, Kaoru Katayama, Yuki Kawamura, Laibach, Rodrigo Matheus, Peaches, Elodie Pong, Stuart Pound, Sara Ramo, Tasman Richardson, Pipilotti Rist, Giorgio Ronna + Matias Aguayo, Corine Stübi, Tetine, Guido van der Werve.
