MARS VIDEO EXCHANGE | METRO ARTS BRISBANE
HANNAH RAISIN | DIEGO RAMIREZ | STEPHEN HALEY
8 – 25 MAY
As part of an exchange, Metro Arts will present the work of three innovative Melbourne video artists: Stephen Haley, Hannah Raisin and Diego Ramirez.
In November 2019, a selection of Brisbane artists, curated by Metro Arts, will be exhibited in the MARS Black Box video projection space.
Screening of Postcard eXotica by Diego Ramirez / Saturday 18th May, 1pm in Metro Arts Gallery 2
Postcard eXotica is a 30 minute cinematic re-enactment of a collection of vintage American postcards produced circa 1900-1930s that depict Mexican stereotypes. The work seeks to think through the Western gaze by approaching the pictures as movie scenes and revealing the condition of their making – particularly the way they are scripted, staged, lit and filmed. In a broader manner, the video pastiches early cinema, contemporary pop and horror to trace the ways in which these ideas manifest today.
Artist Talks / Saturday 18th May, 2-3pm in Metro Arts Gallery
Meet and hear from the studio artists and visiting artists at Metro Arts. Join Hailey Atkins for a casual tour of her exhibition and hear about the ideas and processes that inform her practice. Following the tour, join local artist Anastasia Booth, and visiting Melbourne-based artist Diego Ramirez as part of an in-conversation series.
