Last Riot February 3, 2011, Richmond Art Gallery
Russian conceptual photo- and video-based artists AES+F (Tatyana Arzamasova, Lev Evsovitch, and Evgeny Svyatsky) bring their three-channel HD video project Last Riot to the Richmond Art Gallery February 3. Shown in collaboration with the Vancouver Biennial, the 2007 piece gets into the place where war, torture, and environmental destruction take on a video-game quality, making the world into a fantasy playground where nothing ever seems quite real.
