CITY | Mark Soo: Twilight on the Edge of Town Artist Talk

April 17 | 1–2pm PST

Celebrate the launch of our spring exhibit Mark Soo: Twilight on the Edge of Town with a live talk from Berlin by the artist on our Facebook page and YouTube channel. And then come see the exhibit! This immersive video installation is sure to activate your senses with images projected on multiple screens and an ambient soundtrack of human voices recollecting the past and speculating on the future. The result is part theatre, part cinema, and part art installation that plays for twenty-five minutes. Curator Jordan Strom calls it “a compelling meditation on individual and collective memory, the nature of perception, and the limits of storytelling.” Book your visit to the Gallery on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4–7pm and Saturdays from 10am–3pm by emailing artgallery@surrey.ca or calling 604-501-5566 (press 1).
