Black Fri­day

Designlines - - Road Trip -

To Jun 2 Fans of Ge­orge A. Romero’s zom­bie flicks will ap­pre­ci­ate Sophia Al-maria’s anti-cap­i­tal­ist video in­stal­la­tion, Black Fri­day. Bor­row­ing ef­fects from the post-apoc­a­lyp­tic genre, the artist presents hyp­notic im­ages of Qatari shop­ping malls ac­com­pa­nied by eerie voiceovers and a boom­ing sound­track. She likens shop­ping cen­tres to sa­cred tem­ples, where the push and pull of Amer­i­can-style con­sumerism in the Gulf is played out. FREE, MERCER UNION, 1286 BLOOR ST W MERCERUNION.ORG
