BERLIN COPENHAGEN AMSTERDAM CHICAGO P.E.I. VANCOUVER OSHAWA NICE SEATTLE TORONTO

I am back from my whirlwind trip from Europe! Now I will have Montreal as my homebase as per usual for eight months.

I landed in Berlin and had a very enjoyable birthday with new and old friends. I was so inspired by Liz Rosenfeld, Sadie Weis, Benny Nemerofsky Ramsay, and Cary Cronenwett – all hyper talented North Americans who have moved to Berlin to create art and films. I curated Love is Like the Weather with my best friend Mascha Nehls who helps to organize Entzaubert – the most radical film festival in the world in a forest in a queer wagonplatz!

I had the honour of curating North American artists: Vincent Chevalier, Crystal Mason, Kristin Li, Josh VettiveluSofia MorenoNabeela VegaLamathildeJamie RossShayo DetchemaRaphaële FrigonNikki ForrestFlorence S. LaroseElisha LimGAYMOUSRae Spoon & Chelsea McMullanMalic AmalyaEduardo Restrepo Castaño & Nash GlynnE HearteDayna McLeod & Jackie Gallant.

Also I got to view a test run of CUNT LAB‘s new performance art work which was amazing. I was so pleased to provide performance art support for my friends at the Queer Gala at the Kopi which was an incredible night. It’s always one of my favourite nights in Berlin curated by Miss Tobi and If.

I curated Love is Like the Weather in Denmark with Mix Copenhagen with the help of the Kapow Collective. There I met with amazing performance artists friends that I met in Beijing almost 5 years ago. Anu Ramdas, Nanna Lysholt Hansen and Trine Mee Sook. I wiki-edited for International Women’s Day and I got to add Anu, Nanna and Jane Jin Kaisen to Wikipedia! I also got to meet up with Birthe from the Feminine Moments blog.

AND! I curated an over sold out show in one of my favourite cities Amsterdam with the sweeties of Transcreen. I was inspired there by Eliza Steinbock, Sebastian Deline and k.g. guttman – all North Americans that have moved there to study, teach and create. Also my Italian tech friend Giuliana Dieni and I talked about an exciting future collaboration with Corrine Teed.

I managed to shoot and edit a few new films in Berlin as well one which I think will be a hit with Tamir Shmeltzer Frenkel Lederberg.

Back in North America this winter We Don’t Want to Marry was in the Outsider Fest in Austin. I was delighted to have my film Domesticity be a part of Rendez-vous du Cinéma Québécois –LE GIV AUX RVCQ in Quebec. On March 13 I was curated in Montreal by Kimura Byol for L’Institut Simone de Beauvoir célèbre les 40 ans du GIV / Simone de Beauvoir Institute Celebrates 40 Years of GIVNabeela Vega, Angela Gabereau and I also curated a QPOC version of Future Visions in Boston.

Also in Montreal at Edgy Redux at Studio 303 – Alexis O’Hara and Hannah Morrow joint MCed Future Visions for Nuit Blanche! Somehow by gay miracle we now have 117 video artists that foretell the queer future! Also Angela the hacker genius made a new one card spread so check that out here on your smart phone. Big thank you to Andrea Joy for making this epic projected audience interactive project come together.

I helped to buy a cinema! With The Party’s Over
