LES ORDRES
Dir. Michel Brault (Canada: 1974), 107 min.


Les Orders
is considered one of Canadian cinema’s great works. Following the imposition of the War Measures Act during the October Crisis of 1970, five innocent people are arrested, held without charge, and subject to various humiliations. Les Ordres was based on the actual experiences of many of the 450 Quebecers detained at the time. Les Ordresis the only Canadian film ever to win the Best Director prize at Cannes. It also won Canadian Film Awards for Best Feature, Director, and Screenplay.

Position As Desired: Exploring African Canadian Identity | Photographs from the Wedge Collection
 is the first major exhibition to examine the history, movement and experiences of African Canadians through contemporary photography. This touring exhibition was co-organized with the Royal Ontario Museum (Toronto) where it first opened in 2010, before travelling to The Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 (Halifax) in 2013. Conceived and organized by Windsor-born art collector Kenneth Montague, the exhibition presents a wide variety of photographic works from his personal archive – the Wedge Collection – ranging from rare vintage portraits of the first African immigrants to Canada to contemporary works by established artists. Through works by emerging artists as well as a commissioned video work by the collective In the Black Canada – a video based on a series of interviews with members of Windsor’s Black community – the exhibition attempts to instigate a conversation about the experiences of African Canadians within the context of Canada’s 150th anniversary.

SANAZ MAZINANI
Signal to Noise

February 16, 2017 – April 22, 2017

Opening Reception: Thursday, February 23, 6 – 8 PM
Conversation with the Artist: Thursday, March 9, 6 - 8 PM
Sanaz Mazinani and Marc Mayer, Senior Educator of Contemporary Art, Asian Art Museum

In Signal to Noise, Mazinani presents a combination of photo-based wall sculptures, a large scale wall hanging, and site-specific sound, wall, floor, and window installation elements. The overall effect creates a transformative experience in the gallery space, with the intention of providing visitors a contemplative step away from the inundating stimulus of the current moment. Mazinani sources popular media imagery, mined from the Internet, and through sequential pairing, repeating, and mirroring, creates elaborate geometric patterns evocative of traditional Islamic ornamentation. Her work exploits the parallels of dissociation that occur between the experience of an event and its photographic record, and the means by which repetition, as a media strategy, can affect our association with photographic meaning.
