dls 12 Empty Beds features Dead Rides, an original story by Casey Hannan and ephemera from Steven Beckly, Leonardo Casas García, Anthony Cudahy, Kyle Franklin, Stephen Grebinski, Michael Kurt, Paul Moreno, Sofia Moreno, Dean Sameshima, and Jerry Seguin.
While I was in Calgary for Soft Movements, I sat down with Benjamin Bellas, Steven Cottingham, and Su Ying Strang for a conversation about love, loss, earnestness, sincerity, intimacy, death, among many other things. That conversation, along with an exhibition essay by Lindsay Sorell, and installation images are published in a catalogue for the show.
Steven Beckly’s ‘Reunions’, a part of the 2014 Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival.
You can watch me awkwardly stumble through an interview about Reunions with The Globe and Mail. Last week to see the show! The exhibition ends on May 31.
I want to make small clarification: Reunions is more so about same-sex intimacies across contexts and their ambiguities in still photographs, rather than about identifying same-sex or queer couples (which the video is alluding to). Small but important distinction.
Thank you to everyone who has went to see the show so far!
