PLATFORM Centre: A Workshop with Bridget Moser, May 24

WORKSHOP | 24 May, 2018, 7:00–9:00 p.m.
12 SPACES AVAILABLE | Contact to reserve your spot. The workshop is free.

PLATFORM is excited to present this rare opportunity to work with and learn from one of Canada's most exciting contemporary artists. Bridget Moser will lead a workshop covering the artistic potential of movement, speech, writing and performing. These different skills will be examined though exercises to enable the participants to mine subconscious ideas for creation (automatic writing, continuous improvised speech and movement, etc) How can intuitive processes help generate ideas for inclusion into new projects in any medium, not strictly performance?

This workshop is offered in conjunction with Moser's solo exhibition "If You Have a Similar Story Keep it to Yourself", which runs from 26 May to 6 July, 2018. Moser will also be performing on Wednesday, 20th June at 7:00 p.m.

Living and working in Toronto, she has presented work in venues across Canada and throughout the US and Europe. Moser has been a resident artist at The Banff Centre and at Fondazione Antonio Ratti in Como, Italy. The recipient of a William and Meredith Saunderson Prize for Emerging Artists and a 2016 Toronto Friends of the Visual Arts Finalist Prize, her work has been featured in Canadian Art, C Magazine, Visual Arts News, Artribune Italy, The Dance Current, NOWNESS, and Mousse Magazine. Her work can be found in private and public collections in Canada and Italy and has been exhibited in venues such as the Art Gallery of Ontario, Mercer Union and Gallery TPW (Toronto), the National Arts Centre (Ottawa) and Western Front (Vancouver). She was shortlisted for the 2017 Sobey Art Award.
