For the past 22 years of its 26 year existence Pleasure Dome has presented New Toronto Works, an annual survey of artists moving image and installation produced in the Greater Toronto Area. Across found footage experiments, computer and stop-motion animation, documentaries, travelogues, essay films, formal exercises, and installations, this year’s program is an intergenerational testament to the limitless creativity of Toronto’s moving image practitioners.
Inspired by the muse of experimental film, Kenneth Anger (Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome, 1954), Toronto’s Pleasure Dome programming collective has proven a vital platform for media artists from Canada and abroad since 1989. Nomadic by nature, in the course of nearly five hundred screenings and events Pleasure Dome has presented feature-length works, solo screenings, mid-career retrospectives, open screenings, thematic programs and gallery installations, across genres and formats.
Balagan and AgX welcome Pleasure Dome curator Jesse Cumming to present this program.
