Malcolm Levy: THE RIZE

9 October 2014 through 9 November 2014
Opening reception Thursday 9 October 2014, 6-9pm

Curated by Steven Tong

The Rize is a mixed media installation recounting the conversation at City Council around the topic of arson at the Kingsway and Main Street location (an investigation which is currently unsolved). The video is an abstract rendering of the burnt out site, intercut with effected audio of the dialogue, evoking realities within the current state of affairs. A map of the area follows with further exploration.

Malcolm Levy is an artist and curator based in Vancouver, Canada. He is the Director of the New Forms Festival 2001 – present. His artistic practice focuses on abstract photography and video. Currently he is finishing an MA in Media Studies at the New School, and teaches digital art and installation at the Centre for Digital Media.
