The Gladstone Hotel is proud to collaborate with Toronto International Film Festival's Future Projections. Future Projections fuses cinema's moving image with the gallery's visual arts for a provocative city-wide programme at the 37th Toronto International Film Festival. Ming Wong: Making Chinatown, 2012 7-channel audio HD video installation with sound Courtesy of the artist Commissioned by REDCAT, Los Angeles Curated by Noah Cowan, Artistic Director, TIFF Bell Lightbox Gladstone Gallery, 2nd floor September 6 – 16, 2012 Gallery hours: 12pm – 5pm Video artist Ming Wong recreates select scenes from Roman Polanski's Chinatown with himself cast in each role, and then projects the resulting films onto photographicallyaltered sets reminiscent of studio lots. This funny and occasionally shocking installation addresses race, gender and sexuality while deconstructing cinema conventions and their ability to shape identity. Liang Yue: The Quiet Room, 2012 Three-channel audio digital video installation with sound, 19 minutes Courtesy of the artist and ShanghART Gallery Curated by Noah Cowan, Artistic Director, TIFF Bell Lightbox Art Bar September 6 – 16, 2012 Gallery hours: 12pm – 5pm Opening reception: September 6, 2012 from 7pm – 10pm This serene installation by leading Chinese photographer and filmmaker Liang Yue recalls the most dramatic and ethereal of landscape-based art, profiling Canada in winter through both image and sound. The work focuses on the textures of snow and the mechanics of condensation, coupled with a surprisingly dramatic soundtrack of carefully recorded and amplified winter sounds.
