Event Details

Agnes Etherington Art Centre’s workshop will teach participants how to make a short, hand-drawn or hand-painted animation for display on the internet. It will cover the fundamentals of the animation process and introduce web-based animation programs. Participants will need a computer or laptop. Additional software links will be forwarded to participants after registration.

Chantal Rousseau’s practice brings together popular culture, sex, death, and technology. Playing off fleeting internet obsessions and subcultures, she intertwines humour and the macabre and makes feminism sexy. Her work has been exhibited across Canada and internationally, including Hallwalls Institute of Contemporary Art, Buffalo, The Wrong – New Digital Art Biennale, Canadian Cultural Centre, Paris, Agnes Etherington Art Centre, Kingston, The New Gallery, Calgary, Latitude 53, Edmonton, Mercer Union, Toronto, and La Centrale, Montreal. Her videos have been screened in numerous venues and festivals including Short Film Festival Sueños Cortos, Buenos Aires, and Festival Polyphonix, Bologna, Italy. Her work was featured as GIF of the Day on Art F City in 2014.


Her exhibition Tap Dancing Seagull and Other Stories is on view at Agnes 22 August–6 December 2020



(Sunday) 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm
