Gallery 1C03 is pleased to present Moving Images, an exhibition of 23 short films and videos created by artists affiliated with The University of Winnipeg. Moving Images is organized in recognition of Gallery 1C03's 30th anniversary (opened: September, 1986) and The University of Winnipeg's 50th anniversary (Charter Day: September 15, 1967). The exhibition is co-curated by Gallery 1C03 director/curator Jennifer Gibson and art historian and film critic Alison Gillmor.

For Moving Images the Gallery will serve as a small cinema featuring five thematic shorts programs, each on view for only one week, thereby encouraging repeat visits to watch innovative works directed by University of Winnipeg alumni, current and former students and faculty/instructors. Stop by to watch one or more of the following programs: To Make a Prairie (January 12 – 21); The Personal is Political (January 23 – 28); The Haunted Cinema (January 30 – February 4); Women’s Pictures, Women’s Lives (February 6 – 11); and Funny Haha and Funny Peculiar (February 13 – 18).

Featured artists include Sharon Alward, Scott Benesiinaabandan, Kevin Lee Burton, Shelagh Carter, Ervin Chartrand, Roewan Crowe, The Ephemerals, Danishka Esterhazy, Glen Johnson, Paula Kelly, Matthew Kennedy and Conor Sweeney, John Kozak and Howard Curle, Guy Maddin, Markus.Milos.Ian.Fabian, Mike Maryniuk and Matthew Rankin, Ryan McKenna, Solomon Nagler, Freya Bjorg Olafson, Danielle Sturk, Leslie Supnet, BJ Verot and Brad Crawford, and Shimby Zegeye-Gebrehiwot.

To complement the exhibition, Gallery 1C03 is partnering with the University Library to present The Tender Fragments: a conversation and exhibition. The exhibition features Séances, Guy Maddin, Evan Johnson and Galen Johnson's on-line film project with the National Film Board of Canada, as well as a small selection of Maddin's cinematic collages. These works will be shown in the Hamilton Galleria located on the 4th floor mezzanine level of the Library. The exhibition will be available for viewing during the Library's operating hours and runs January 12 - February 18.

The Tender Fragments conversation, which takes place on January 12 at 7:00 p.m. in Eckhardt-Gramatté Hall, features Alison Gillmor speaking with Guy Maddin and Evan Johnson about the role of the archive in Séances and other works by this filmmaking team.

Moving Images also includes panel discussions with faculty members Dr. Andrew Burke (English/Cultural Studies) on Cinematic Experimentalism and Dr. Julie Nagam (Chair of Indigenous Arts of North America) on Unravelling the braids of colonialism, gender and the body, as well as an on-line publication related to Moving Images featuring texts by Alison Gillmor, Jennifer Gibson, Roewan Crowe, and more.
