Painter Margaux Williamson uses Shakespeare's Hamlet to explore the conflicts, confusions and contradictions of her downtown Toronto peers in her first feature-length video project. An installation consisting of film stills, screen tests, paintings and a screening create what Williamson calls a "weird parallel universe to mainstream cinema" in the very neighbourhood where Teenager Hamlet 2006 was shot. Williamson's project and her simulation of the traditional commercial movie experience pose compelling questions. Curated by Steve Gravestock, presented by Katharine Mulherin Contemporary Art Projects in association with Future Projections. Katharine Mulherin Contemporary Art Projects, 1082 Queen Street West. September 4 through 13, daily from noon to 5 p.m., nightly screenings in the Gallery at 7:30 p.m. from September 5 - 10.
Opening September 5 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
