Critical Distance presents SLIPSTREAMS in the Cinesphere
3 screenings: 9/17, 9/19, and 9/20
Critical Distance is thrilled to present Slipstreams, an original 30-min program of moving image works by Morehshin Allahyari (Brooklyn), Maria Flawia Litwin (Toronto), Manuel Saiz (Logroño, Spain), Marianna Milhorat (Chicago), and Terence Nance (Brooklyn). Our program will screen in the Cinesphere at Ontario Place on three dates during in/future, an exciting festival of art and music presented by Art Spin in partnership with Small World Music, September 15-25, 2016. Responding to the site and festival context, Slipstreams brings together five artists whose works envisage the slippage of time between past and future, and how humans seek to transcend the present moment.
The program is included in a longer set of film and video works to be screened in the Cinesphere as follows:
Saturday, September 17th from 2–3 pm
Vtape Program I, Slipstreams presented by Critical Distance
Monday, September 19th from 7–8:40 pm

Tuesday, September 20th from 7–9 pm

In/future’s screening schedule has more information on each artist/artwork in the above programs. Seats are first-come, first served, so please arrive 15 minutes early and be prepared to stay for the duration of the full program on whichever day you attend.
And while you’re at the festival, keep an eye out for CDCC Founding Director Shani K Parsons‘ independent curatorial project featuring large-scale eye-popping artworks by Brooklyn-based artist Tamara Gayer inside the main entrance and on the pavilion rooftops — you can’t miss them!
