Co-presented by Olivier Mosset ($20, $15 students)  7pm- 3am

 

“The best, most temporal way of making a building that I ever heard of is by making it with light. The Fascists did a lot of this “light architecture.”  If you build buildings with lights outside, you can make them indefinite, and then when you’re through using them

you shut the lights off and they disappear.”

-Andy Warhol (1975)

 

A feast for all senses, EV invites you to our polyphonic living installation of film, music and multiple multi-channeled mayhem. The Exploded View gallery will be transformed into giant mirrored chamber within which will be projected Andy Warhol’s 1964 silent 8 hour/10 reel film masterpiece EMPIRE. The back of the Tooleshed warehouse will be transformed into a Warholian scenemaker lounge FACTORY with couches, carpets, silk-screening, lots of food, libations and trippy visuals accompanied by DJ sets and live music from Caleb Gutierrez (DesertDeer), Nika Kaiser, Clif Taylor, Oliver Ray, Carl Hanni & more. This come-and-go event is a first time fundraiser for Exploded View, as we enter our 5th year, to stay strong in our mission of cultivating film, music and provocation!

(Vancouver filmmaker Ryder Thomas White in person)

Engaging DIY aesthetics and politics, Iris Film Collective presents eight of their new hand-processed b&w 16mm films with a collective theme addressing “the end of the world”. Iris writes, “… the sea levels rise, the magnetic poles switch, we face the mortality of ourselves and those we love and question ideas of identity, representation and time itself.” This unique program pushes the technical limits of motion picture film, imagination and collaboration.

IFC is a Vancouver-based group of independent artists creating, exhibiting and touring film-based works with the goal of increasing the visibility and accessibility of experimental media art. Above all, our interest in ciné film—actual celluloid—at a time when this medium is shifting to a post-industry model, is of key interest in all our pursuits.
