The Impossible Blue Rose - video installation at UWAG Export this event to calendar

Thursday, October 11, 2018 — 12:00 PM to Saturday, October 27, 2018 — 5:00 PM EDT

Visit the multidisciplinary video installation by artist Lisa Lipton on display at the University of Waterloo Art Gallery (UWAG) until October 27. The fragmented narrative follows the artist's surrogate Frankie as they journey from the fictional town of Greysville crisscrossing North America before making it all the way to paradise: Hawaii. Augmented by props, furniture, and costumes from the nine chapters of the video, the installation evokes the desire to run away, reinvent oneself, and find true love. THE IMPOSSIBLE BLUE ROSE encapsulates the artist’s work in video, theatre, dance, poetry, drumming, and sculpture culminating in a hallucinatory journey of self-discovery.
