“The Labour of Commemoration” is a collaborative exhibition by artists and Ryerson University professors, Blake Fitzpatrick and Vid Ingelevics. The exhibition will open at Prefix Institute of Contemporary Art, Toronto, on October 5, 2017. The exhibition is comprised of several elements including a three-channel video projection, 3-D copies of one Berlin Wall souvenir, video and photographic documentation of the fence that separates the United States and Mexico and a small book documenting the placement and movement of the wall in the small Canadian town of Truro, Nova Scotia. Each aspect explores an example of the commemorative impulse and critically examines the implications of borders, walls and the tension between history and memory.

Uwe Scholz (1958-2004), an exceptionally talented German choreographer who passed away far too young, left behind a rich legacy. The evening’s second work, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7, described by Richard Wagner as “the apotheosis of the dance,” is one of his master works. With its remarkable musicality, this ballet on pointe, as finely cut as a diamond, leaves no one indifferent. It makes for a memorable evening of music and dance.
