Winnipeg musician Curran Faris has been recording and performing as Greenhouse since 2009. With albums released on labels such as Reverb Worship and Prairie Fire Tapes, Faris has performed in galleries and rock venues alike. Greenhouse sees Faris exploring atypical guitar sounds that are more akin to the austere textures found in noise and electronic music, while still utilizing the guitar as the primary sound source. The results are sprawling, textural soundscapes that are minimal and immersive, atmospheric and melodic, noisy and soothing.

Swedish artists Leif Elggren and Kent Tankred have worked in the arts for over 20 years. In 1988 they formed the duo The Sons of God (Guds Söner), a constellation which moves freely between performance, music, and the visual arts, and whose productions often reach a point where traditional aesthetic boundaries, limitations, and concepts are eliminated. The Sons of God observe and document, experiment and ask questions, build up and tear down, empowering the viewer to take what they want or simply leave. The Sons of God are radical in their approach, and their work brings something truly innovative and special to this edition of the festival.

A pioneering force behind the evolution of American minimalism, legendary artist Tony Conrad works within the idea of Eternal Music, a droning, mesmerizing performance idiom which employs long durations, amplification, and precise pitch to explore new worlds of sound. On this very special occasion Conrad will conclude our Friday night event by presenting one of his renowned solo performances for amplified violin. With a history of radical and conceptual contributions to music, film, and visual art, it’s a great honour to present Tony Conrad here at our 15th edition.

Whose Winnipeg?
A Workshop about Neoliberalism, Settler Colonialism, and the Production of Urban Space

This workshop brings together activists, advocates, writers, researchers, journalists, artists, and organizers to present notes, observations, histories, research findings, arguments, questions, essays, and articles about the contemporary urban processes that shape Winnipeg, from an anti-colonial and anti-neoliberal perspective.

It is a continuation of discussions that took place at two consecutive workshops organized by Owen Toews, David Hugill, and Bronwyn Dobchuk-Land at the 2013 meeting of the Association of American Geographers (AAG) in Los Angeles, California, USA.

The Winnipeg incarnation of this workshop has been organized by Kate Sjoberg, Owen Toews, and Bronwyn Dobchuk-Land and is generously sponsored by the Manitoba Research Alliance.
