Café Ex: The Moving Images of Monique Moumblow
December 14, 2013

Inaugurated in 1998, the sixteenth season of this ongoing visiting artist series presents artist-curated evenings of independent experimental film and video in the intimate atmosphere of Club SAW. Once again, the series features Canadian experimental cinema, with guest filmmakers presenting their work and engaging in extensive discussions with audience members for a "pay-what-you-can" admission.

Please join us December 14 at 7:00pm as we welcome Monique Moumblow to Café Ex.

Moumblow was born in Hamilton, Ontario and received a BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in 1992. In 1993, Moumblow moved to Montréal where she began to focus on single-channel video and installation. Her work explores, with candour and humour, the separation between voice and the written word. It also investigates the nature of language itself, and examines how narratives are constructed.

Moumblow's work has screened at festivals and galleries in North America and Europe, including the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec, the Musée d'Art Contemporain du Val-de-Marne, the Festival international du court-metrage (Clermont Ferrand), Impakt (Utrecht), and The International Short Film and Video Festival (Oberhausen). Her videos have been awarded prizes at Cinematexas, The Images Festival (Toronto) and L'immagine Leggera (Palermo) and are included in the collections of the National Gallery of Canada and the Netherlands Media Art Institute. Moumblow has been actively involved with various artist-run centres in Montréal and was co-founder of Sugar Press. She has taught in the Intermedia/Cyberarts department at Concordia University.

Monique Moumblow will attend the screening to introduce and discuss her work.
