"My Statement is a verb; look, make, learn, teach, a daily practice. I am motivated by the processes of intuition, spontaneity and stream of consciousness. I am curious and ask questions about materials, technology forms, and aesthetics. To answer the questions and satisfy the curiosity I always return to the daily practice of look, make, learn, teach ..." - Richard Kerr
Richard Kerr is a visual artist-media maker known for his expansive body of work, which has explored a multiplicity of genres and mediums since the 1970’s. In the 1990’s Richard expanded his practice to encompass meta-cinema installation work and most notably the conceptualization of the Motion Picture Weaving Project. Richard is a teacher/artist, as such his studio informs his teaching and his teaching inspires his studio work.
Special thanks to Innis College and the University of Toronto Cinema Studies Institute for making this screening possible.
Ad Hoc is a screening collective with no fixed address. This is a mobile screening series, which aims to rethink what an experience of cinema can be, including the spaces in which it can be exhibited. We seek to reposition historical landmarks and buried treasures within the on-going tradition of experimental and other non-commercial modes of filmmaking, drawing on work from Toronto, throughout Canada, and internationally. Within these parameters, we aspire to diversity in programming, as well as to multimedia and interdisciplinary screening events that bring together varied communities.
Ad Hoc = Stephen Broomer, Katia Houde, Daniel McIntyre, Cameron Moneo, Madi Piller, Claudia Sicondolfo, Jim Shedden, Tess Takahashi.
