Sometimes Always


June 6-August 30, 2009

CFAT curator: John Matthews
AGNS curator: Robert Zingone

Audio-based works reutilizing a range of discontinued audio formats such as cassette players, reel-to-reel recorders, 8 track players, record turntables. These outmoded devices are transformed, often in absurdist manners, referencing a range of musical genres and approaches, including Dada, punk, electro and DIY cultures. Many of these “lo-tech” instruments are discarded in favour of today’s rapidly fluctuating digital technologies. However, these “lo-tech” formats still possess unique capabilities and harbour a strong nostalgic resonance for many. Accompanying the exhibition, there will be a series of workshops, a live performance by Felix Kubin, a radio show on CKDU and gallery talks by the artists.
