OUTeast Film Fest goes to the galleries

The OUTeast Fim Festival starts this Thursday, with all kinds of screenings and parties happening all weekend long. But it’s not just movies at this year’s festival.

I have come to ask you to tell me everything you know about the night is an exhibition of the works of Benny Nemerofsky Ramsay at the Khyber, with the opening reception taking place this Thursday, June 20. The exhibition will take place in a gallery that used to house the Turret, one of Halifax’s first gay bars.

Ramsay’s work runs the gamut from video to sound to text. His work has been exhibited across Canada, Europe and South East Asia and is part of the collection of the National Gallery of Canada and the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna. Two of the pieces for I have come were commissioned especially for OUTeast, including a sound installation entitled Night Bird and a mixed-media piece called Nightwood.

The exhibition runs June 21 to 29, with an artist tour taking place on Saturday, June 22 at 1:30pm.
