Free City Radio — fall / winter 2015 community conference series @ la pass: Join Free City Radio in collaboration with La Passe and with the support of the Community News Collective at CKUT 90.3FM for a series of community lectures, on the first Tuesday of each month (started in October 2015) until 2016. This lecture series is FREE to attend, donations appreciated. Presentations will be recorded for radio broadcast on CKUT radio.

  The Concordia University Community Lecture Series on HIV/AIDS presents I Am Not Alone In This Way:
Queer and Black in Contemporary Art. The lecture will take place in Concordia University Community Lecture Series on HIV/AIDS (1455 de Maisonneuve Ouest), on December 1, at 7pm. The lecture will be in English. Admission is FREE. Doors open at 6:45pm.

Sur, a Montreal native, never regretted his decision to move to New York, despite the hoops he was expected to jump through as a resident alien and identifiable queer Black male. He was able to create a world for himself within the field of contemporary art beginning in the early 1980s – a fly in the buttermilk of a predominantly white contemporary art world. “I hadn’t realized how segregated the art world was then, not was I expected to be a survivor of the AIDS pandemic that was then in full dress rehearsal.”

The onset and struggle around AIDS and its effect on the art world would manifest itself during his co-directorship of the Gracie Mansion Gallery, a prominent East Village gallery named after his partner Gracie Mansion, beginning in 1982. ACT-UP would form in 1987. In 1988 Sur’s activist stance would have him leave his gallery position to help take care of artist friends living with HIV/AIDS while beginning a mission to set up and advise on their Estates. In the mid-1990s he was invited to serve on the Board of Visual AIDS, wherein he helped organize exhibitions of artists affected by HIV/AIDS and assisting in the creation of the Visual AIDS Archive Project which would become the largest archive documenting the works of artists with HIV/AIDS in the world.

University of the Streets Café: Men and Feminism What role should men play in the feminist movement? Recently, feminist mobilization campaigns have received a lot of media attention. Their common goal: putting men at the center of the discussion. Internationally, #HeforShe, a campaign launched by UN Women, argued that gender equality is not solely a women’s issue and called on men to make their voices heard. Closer to home, #BeenRapedNeverReported made men more aware of the realities faced by women in their communities. At the same time, feminist voices are emerging that oppose this new focus. Can men be part of the feminist movement without transforming its very nature? What are the advantages and disadvantages of their participation? This public conversation invites people of all genders to explore what it means to be an ally. If men want to support feminist causes, what role should they play? How can we work together (or separately) to fight gender-based oppression? Monday, April 20, 19-21H, free, Café Bloom, 1940 rue du Centre.

Film Screening: ‘Let Each One Go Where He May’ by Ben Russell with filmmaker present “Let Each One Go Where He May is the stunning feature debut of celebrated filmmaker Ben Russell. Having its world premiere in Toronto, the film traces the extensive journey of two unidentified brothers who venture from the outskirts of Paramaribo, Suriname, on land and through rapids, past a Maroon village on the Upper Suriname River, tracing the voyage undertaken by their ancestors, who escaped from slavery at the hands of the Dutch 300 years prior. Shot almost entirely with a 16mm Steadicam rig in thirteen extended tracking shots, this cartographic portrayal of contemporary Saramaccan culture is a rigorous and exquisite work that partakes in and dismantles traditional ethnography, inviting anachronism and myth-making to participate in the film’s daring conflation of history.” - Andréa Picard, TIFF April 22, 19H, $9-10, Cinémathèque Québécoise, 335 boul. de Maisonneuve E.

Exhibition: ‘For All We Know’ by Catherine Everett La Galerie Han Art est fière de présenter l’exposition solo de la peintre Catherine Everett intitulée For All We Know.

Artist Talk w/ Yinka Shonibare MBE British artist Yinka Shonibare MBE will discuss his exhibition Pièces de résistance with Cheryl Sim, DHC/ART Curator. April 27, 19H, free, Phi Centre, 407 rue Saint-Pierre. 

University of the Streets Café: Personalizing the Oil Sands What can we learn from the multiple narratives of extraction? The oil sands are one of the largest industrial complexes in the world and undeniably a central part of Canada’s economy and international identity. Despite its prominence, discussions of this subject can seem taboo and often present only two opposing narratives pitted against each other; economic development versus environmental preservation. Is it really that simple? What about the diverse narratives in between that are lost in these polarized exchanges? This public conversation will emphasize the human-side of the story, focusing on the perspectives of people directly affected by and implicated in the oil sands. How does this industrial development impact First Nations communities? What about oil workers, farmers and faith leaders? The people who actually live in Fort McMurray often feel frustrated with how issues are presented to the wider public. Can their perspectives deepen the debates around this topic? Together, we will reflect on the roles each of us play in the oil sands as we seek to take a more holistic look at this controversial subject. April 29, 19H, freeAnglican Diocese, 1444 Union.
