All Day Art Exhibition: Surface Tension (Multi-Day Event)
The Robert Langen Art Gallery's Fall 2016 exhibition, Surface Tension is an ongoing collaborative interdisciplinary sound and video work created by renowned Canadian artists Eve Egoyan (piano) and David Rokeby (installation). On Fridays during the exhibition run, visitors are invited to play the Disklavier themselves and to experience the ways in which the video projection responds to their inputs. We gratefully acknowledge Yamaha Canada Music and Music Plus for generously providing the Yamaha Disklavier Piano featured in the exhibit.

    Wilfrid Laurier University will welcome Sean Devlin, a multimedia artist, comedian and activist from The Yes Men, as the 2016/17 activist-in-residence on the Brantford campus. The activist-in-residence program is designed to encourage students, faculty and the broader community to explore and engage with important contemporary issues.

    Devlin will be the guest of Laurier Brantford’s Digital Media and Journalism (DMJ) program and will create a “Yes Lab” on campus. The lab will bring together students, faculty, an activist group or an NGO, members of the local community and the Yes Men to devise effective and educational activist projects.

    Come out and meet our Activist in Residence, Sean Devlin as well as Yes Men founding member Andy Bichlbaum. Both will be present to talk about their work and answer questions at an informal social event.
