Cartooning, Fine Arts, and Video Games with Jesse Jacobs & James Kirkpatrick
Thursday, November 15, 2018 | 7:00PM
Free | Registration required | Spaces are limited
Award winning graphic novelist Jesse Jacobs joins artist and musician James Kirkpatrick to discuss how their creative processes, mutual influences, and shared community have lead to their collaboration on the upcoming video game Spinch. Jesse Jacobs studied art at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. He is the author of the comic books By This shall You Know Him, Safari Honeymoon, and Crawl Space (Koyama Press). He has recently transitioned into the world of video game design, and his first project, Spinch, will be available December 2018. His drawings have appeared in The New York Times, The Pitchfork Review, McSweeney’s Quarterly, and Le Monde Diplomatique. He currently lives in London, Ontario. James Kirkpatrick is known for his participation in the early Canadian graffiti movement and as avant-gard hip-hop artist “Thesis Sahib”. He works in a variety of media including drawing, painting, sculpture, zines, maskmaking and experimental sound improvisation. By combining his 2D aesthetic with custom-built circuit-bentelectronics, Kirkpatrick creates sculptures that function as both musical instruments and experimental sound machines. The sculptures are extensions of his drawing and painting practice and are also used in collaborations and live performances. Kirkpatrick currently lives and maintains a studio in London and has exhibited his work throughout the USA and Canada.

Playing the World A look at the artistic practice of James Kirkpatrick with curator Lisa Daniels
Thursday, November 22, 2018 | 7:00PM
Free | Registration required | Spaces are limited

What if the finished art work (or the exhibition) is no longer considered the end result of a process, but rather a place of production and collaboration? Lisa Daniels, the curator of To the Unseen Future will ponder the artistic practice of James Kirkpatrick within the idea of postproduction – a practice that is characterized by artist’s who work with objects, ideas, and images already in circulation and require the collaboration of the viewer to use the work in order to complete it.
