VIVO Media Arts Centre presents a solo exhibition of Laura Gildner’s multi-channel video installation Informer throughout April 2020. Comprised of nine concurrently running video portraits of Caucasian male emcees from various cities and towns across Canada, Informer is a poignant rumination on performative masculinity, fanaticism, and whiteness within contemporary hip hop culture. Filmed individually within personal spaces of their own choosing, subjects are depicted within single extended takes. As each emcee awaits their turn to perform, tensions between constructed identities and non-performative personas begin to collide. Escalating into a makeshift rap battle that becomes as provocative as it is tender, Informer confronts viewers with the aspirational struggles of nine individuals while reflecting on rhetorical understandings of honesty in the process.

A wheelchair ramp is located at the west side of the main entrance.
