The re-thinking of the traditional presentation forms and our work with new/experimental presentations forms involves a very diverse field with many elements to consider – like how we work with audience segments, how we choose the spaces to present the artistic works in, how we communicate with the audience and the society, how we choose artists etc.
During the 2020 edition of the GAS festival, we want to try a new way of working with the festival content. We are therefore launching the showcase concept EME – Experimental Music Expo, taking place October 16th-17th 2020!
Nature is a construct. What in Canada is often termed “wilderness” is a concept rejected by Indigenous peoples. For millennia, rivers, lakes portages and trails enabled vast trading networks throughout North America. This is no wilderness; it is home.
For the 2020 edition of the GAS festival we are once again working with four international guest curators who will help us shape the festival. This edition’s curators are New York based artist and curator Du Yun, artistic director David Dacks, director and producer Cathie Boyd and artistic director Bert Palinckx.
With GAS 2020 we wish to explore the significance of place in relation to listening and to the artistic experience. But it’s also about exploring the significance of place in relation to its social geography and questions concerning inclusion and exclusion.
The 2018 festival is since a few weeks over, and we can’t even begin to express the gratitude we feel! This year’s festival has been a massive success in so many ways.
