Former CBC radio personality and photographer David Wisdom hosts one of his legendary communal slideshows.
Featuring local artists and arts practitioners, the evening is a warm gathering pairing selected images on the topics of art, music, cars, and school with music. Introductions and remarks will be made by Wisdom and featured artists Rodney Graham, Neil Wedman, and Kathy Slade- all significant artists in our current exhibition, Art School High.
Wisdom began presenting public slideshows in the late 1960s with a group of friends that included Jeff Wall, Ian Wallace, and Rodney Graham, the artists who became the core of the so-called Vancouver School of Photography. The four later went on to form the music project UJ3RK5 in the late 1970s. After 30 years as a network radio host on CBC Radio 2, Wisdom revived the public slide show concept retooled for the digital age. Since then he has presented multiartist shows in dozens of venues including the PuSH Festival in Vancouver, the Elks Hall in Sidney, Nebraska, Mahon Hall on Saltspring Island, and for the past eight years at the Vancouver Art Gallery.
