Please Join us on April 8, from 7-9pm for the launch of 2 new projects:

A Poetry Reading: Occupying Minds
Thursday, April 8, 7pm. Free.

A reading on the theme of “the university” in conjunction with a projection of Sabine Bitter and Helmut Weber’s “The University Paradox”, an installation shown concurrently in Galerie Grita Insam, Vienna.

Organized by Jeff Derksen, a group reading of poets who work in and through the education industry. All language is in solidarity against "the shipwreck of the singular" (George Oppen) with all eyes on the future horizon.

The lineup of readers is: Clint Burnham, Stephen Collis, Jeff Derksen, Kim Duff, Reg Johanson, Larissa Lai, Donato Mancini, and Cecily Nicholson.


The University Paradox
A Projection by Bitter & Weber concurrently on view at Galerie Grita Insam, Vienna.

April 8, 1-9pm,
April 9 & 10, 1-5pm

A work of mediated images of student protests, university occupations, and political aesthetics from 1968 to today. Drawn from the archives of Simon Fraser University and documentation of the recent occupation of the University of Vienna, this exhibition of mediated photographs springs from the super stylish and super affective political and aesthetic revolutionary campus movements.

Symbolic of difference and utopian thinking, The Pavilion is a geodesic dome intended to serve as a catalyst for speculative thinking and artistic experimentation.
