“Swarm is an annual festival of artist run culture organized by the Pacific Association of Artist Run Centres. Initiated by PAARC in 1999, Swarm began as an event to mark the launch of Vncouver’s artist-run centre programming season, bringing together events from some of the city’s most vital and innovative contemporary art spaces on a single frenetic evening. Swarm soon grew to a multi-night event, incorporating more and more of the city’s ephemeral artist-run initiatives: small DIY spaces, studios-turned-galleries, roaming public projects, artist collectives, and hybrid projects.” For more information visit Swarm

Small Works: Studies & Tests from Shiro Yagi

A film in production through the LAIR residency at Cineworks, Shiro Yagi,  is a 6 minute experimental docu-animation by interdisciplinary artist, Cindy Mochizuki. Select smaller works from the production which include animation loops, paper cut-outs, drawings, 35 mm home video footage and archival photographs will be exhibited in the context of memory work and the intricate processes and stages of trial and error that are often unseen before a film is actually conceived.
