A Screening and Panel Discussion. To consolidate the intended dialogue about the unorthodox exhibiting methods of HYBIRD, Vitrine Gallery host a Talk and Q&A session towards the end of the exhibition run. Artists and Curator will be at the event to take questions.
Opening this event will be the screening of a short documentary by Louise Reed on the project. Interviewing each artist about their idea before the group install and then documenting the process, she created an overview of the exhibitions creation.
Dallas Seitz followed the screening with an introduction and discussion. Seitz is a Canadian artist and curator who lives and works in London. He formally ran 1000000 mph Gallery, London for six years. Seitz unapologetically utilises the poetry of objects to combine his interest in collecting, museumology, colonization, personal history and the falsity of representation. The often absurd works expose an awareness of the thinking process while recalling museum collections and relationships between display and life.
