UrbanScreen Exhibition Visits

Chuck Bailey Recreation Centre

13458 107a Ave

Surrey, BC

In-person Digital & new media Film & video Kids Visual arts Youth & teens

Riffing on the children’s game of “I spy,” Flavourcel’s project for UrbanScreen captures different sights from across Whalley and the broader Surrey region in animated form. The collective invites you to “spy” the things that connect with you: nearby shop facades, local ingredients, Surrey wildlife, popular sports, and more. Over the course of the exhibition, different members of the collective will re-mix “I Spy a City,” adding new animations while reconfiguring others, ensuring that there will be plenty of surprises in store for repeat visitors to UrbanScreen. The selected animations cover a range of style and content, all connected in their charming, surreal, or cerebral imagining of micro narratives, fantastic characters, and surprising re-configurations of ordinary materials and processes. Flavourcel includes Harlo Martens, Kat Morris, Josh Neu, Julia Song, Alia Hijaab, Chhaya Naran, Gil Goletski, Laurel Pucker, Lana Connors, and Chris Strickler. Exhibition runs from Sept 25, 2021 to January 2, 2022. UrbanScreen begins playing just after sunset on the side of Chuck Bailey Recreation Centre.

This event runs the duration of Culture Days.
