send + receive: a festival of sound v18 presents: Unstuck | Marla Hlady

Unstuck | Marla Hlady

October 7 – 28, 2016

aceartinc., 290 McDermot Ave., 2nd floor | Tuesday–Saturday, noon–5:00pm

Artist talk and opening reception October 7 at 7:00pm. 

Toronto-based artist Marla Hlady creates distinct works that play with concepts of utility through audio, kinetic sculpture and sculptural installation. For our 18th edition festival we have invited her to present a solo exhibition featuring three works that engage with this year’s Space & Sound theme from a distinctly architectural perspective. This solo exhibition will feature a new version of Walls, a multi-dimensional kinetic sound installation that reimagines the gallery space as a moving sculptural instrument, Third Floor Radiator, a multimedia sculpture that scales down the Gairloch Gardens gallery in Oakville to dollhouse dimensions, with each room animated and activated as a unique sound object and the silent and playful Leveller, a seemingly utilitarian machine that is perpetually seeking balance. unstuck

We are thrilled to present Marla Hlady for the first time here in Winnipeg to share her work as part of our 18th edition.

Presented in partnership with aceartinc. with special assistance from the Manitoba Arts Council, Ontario Arts Council and University of Toronto at Scarborough.

send + receive is an annual, international festival that investigates the disciplines of experimental music and sound art, and is one of the longest standing media arts festivals in North America focusing exclusively on sound-based work.
