Outer Worlds

by Jesse Cumming

Canadian Art, May 23, 2019, p. 4

"Outer Worlds," the closing night event of the 2019 Images Festival in Toronto, features IMAX short films by artists Oliver Husain, Lisa Jackson, Kelly Richardson, Michael Snow, and Leila Sujir. These artists push the boundaries between experimental film and the usual use of the IMAX format, which is usually reserved for commercial cinema. Before the description of the films , Cumming introduces the intention of the show, which was to give artists access to large-format film, and the background of the location (Cinesphere, at Ontario Place on the Toronto waterfront).
