Alternorthern Exhibit

So... when did you figure out that you had AIDS? is one of three video works that I will be exhibiting as part of the Alternorthern exhibition at the LAB in San Francisco next month.

Here is an excerpted description of the show from the LAB's website:

“Alternorthern” was conceived in the tension that exists between nationalism, globalization, and individualism: the exhibition is a product of both cultural values and cultural hybridism. The nine artists in this exhibition function similarly in that they use their own identities to make gestures that transgress time and space. Each artist in the exhibition is Canadian, yet each creates work that speaks to issues pertinent to both Canadian and global geographic and political landscapes.

The show runs from February 12th to March 6th. The opening is February 12th from 6-9pm.

Hope to see you there!


  1. Thanks for showing your work in "Alternorthern!" We really enjoyed having you in the show and are big fans of your work. I really love the graphic intimacy of Full Disclosure, especially with the sound on headphones. I think it's interesting how an action so mundane becomes almost pornographically intimate under that treatment. Great stuff.

  2. Thanks so much for your comments. It feels good to have the work shown the way it is in the gallery. It really brings out those things that you mention - "graphic intimacy," mundanity, pornographic...

    I'm thrilled to be showing at the Lab and want to thank you all so much for the support in putting up, organising, and promoting the show! It was such a pleasure.
