Art for Lunch
Art 21 Screening:
Omer Fast
Friday, May 22
12:15 to 1:00 pm
Rotary Education Centre

Explore the ways in which contemporary artists represent identity, documentary and narrative in the MacLaren’s current exhibition Under the Rose Arch by Dominique Ray and the video installations of Omer Fast as seen in this screening of Art 21. Tour of Under the Rose Arch follows the screening.

Omer Fast’s multichannel video installations blur the boundaries between documentary, dramatization, and fantasy, frequently generating viewers' confusion. Fast often anchors his narratives with a conversation between two people—whether there are subjects recounting their own stories or actors playing roles of interviewer and interviewee. As dialogues escalate in tension, portraits of carefully calibrated identity emerge. (Art 21)
