We are excited to announce 'Live Lecture Streaming Podium: I am Not a Cat', a solo exhibition featuring Judy Radul from February 16 to April 21, 2024!

Please join us for a reception February 16 at 6pm! ��

Serving as both a presentation stage and playback system, Radul’s 'Live Lecture Streaming Podium' frames and distorts live lectures to highlight the non-neutrality of technology.

Inspired by online presentations where one encounters sophisticated content altered by its digital format, 'Live Lecture Streaming Podium' references the distinctive quirks that come with using technology for disseminating information. Acting as a functioning stage, this podium also enters chance happenings into the lecture, denaturalizing this knowledge to remind us that not only is the content of these digital presentations subjective, but that their framework contains a subjectivity that inherently remolds the information they convey as well.

Judy Radul’s video installations often feature technical systems, including an original computer-controlled motion choreography and playback system for live and pre-recorded video. Recent exhibitions include: Dazibao, Montreal, 2023; Gwangju Biennale, 2021; Albertinum Museum, Dresden, 2021; Kunstinstitute Melly, Rotterdam, 2017. Her large-scale media installation 'World Rehearsal Court' (2009) has been shown in Vancouver, Vienna, Seoul, Oslo and Moscow. She has published two books with Sternberg Press Berlin: 'A Thousand Eyes: Media Technology, Law and Aesthetics', 2011 co-edited with Marit Paasche, and 'This Is Television', 2018. Radul received a B.A in Fine and Performing Arts, Simon Fraser University, Vancouver, 1991 and Master of Visual and Media Arts, Bard College, New York, 2000. She is Professor of Visual Art at SFU School for Contemporary Arts. She lives in Berlin and Vancouver (unceded Tsleil-Waututh, Skwxwú7mesh and Musqueam lands) and is represented by Catriona Jeffries Gallery, Vancouver.
