X AVANT XV: Transmissions

October 1, 2020

October 18, 2020

Free Virtual event



Events Description

In a time of transmissions and transitions: welcome to the Music Gallery’s 2020-21 season. The COVID-19 pandemic has changed everything for everyone; never has arts presentation faced such existential questions as it does today. While we fear viral transmissions, we need to continue cultural transmissions in order to maintain a semblance of ourselves during this time.

This festival deliberately centers queer, Indigenous, black and POC artists, focusing on individual journeys into musical experimentation. This challenges notion of who has historically been given license to create “art music” in public spaces, where this art is allowed to exist, and what genres of expression are attributed to different communities.

OK Miss featuring Du Yun / Thin Edge New Music Collective
Leanne Simpson Trio / Rich Brown / Kaie Kellough & Jason Sharp
Tara Kannangara / c_RL/ Classic Roots / Mingjia / Norman Otis Richmond
Ron Gaskin Tribute / Alanna Stuart

All shows will be available to stream online and will be a mix of on and off-site concerts produced by the Music Gallery; (still) located at 918 Bathurst Centre for Culture, Arts, Media and Education.
