A SLIDE SHOW EVENING WITH DAVID WISDOM
Former CBC radio personality and photographer David Wisdom hosts one of his legendary
communal slide shows.
Featuring local artists and arts practitioners, the evening is a
warm gathering pairing selected images on the topics of art, music, cars and school,
with music, with introductions by Wisdom and featured artists – Rodney Graham,
Neil Wedman and Kathy Slade - all significant artists in our current exhibition, Art
Wisdom began presenting public slideshows in the late 1960s with a group of friends
that included Jeff Wall, Ian Wallace and Rodney Graham, the artists who became the
core of the so-called Vancouver School of Photography. The four later went on to
form the music project UJ3RK5 in the late 1970s.
After 30 years as a network radio host on CBC Radio 2, Wisdom revived the public
slide show concept retooled for the digital age. Since then he has presented multiartist
shows in dozens of venues including the PuSH Festival in Vancouver. The Elks
Hall in Sidney Nebraska, Mahon Hall on Salt Spring Island, and for the past eight years
at the Vancouver Art Gallery.
