Award Winning Music Video Director RT! Presents “The Art Of Music Video Exhibition”

What: THE ART OF MUSIC VIDEO exhibition

Where: Sleeping Giant Gallery (789 Dundas Street West)

When: Opening night Friday June 12th, 09

Time: 6PM to 12AM

The discipline of photography, is finding hidden beauty in the visual realm we can see everyday. It is changing the way you see things in order to find the unique, the iconic, the visually intriguing. This is the true expression of what THE ART OF MUSIC VIDEO exhibition is about. We’ve all seen the music videos but to see them as still images, frozen moments, where artistic disciplines such as fashion design, art direction, lighting design, photography, and performance art collide to create stand-alone dreamlike realities can be breathtaking.

The gallery art show (JUNE 12 –19) will display blown up photographs of music artists, stills of music videos and raw footage video installations, to emphasize the artistry that goes into creating hip-hop, rock and pop music art. The show is intended to blur the lines between photography and filmography as it freezes moments in music videos, focusing the audience to the carefully constructed details that go into the production of these often discarded works of art. The important photographic elements of the music video that are present in most other forms of photography (setting, fashion, performance expression) will be given their due time to be thoughtfully deciphered and considered. For the first time in Music video history, the “music” will be separated from the “video” and be given its time to be observed for what it is, raw inspiration captured on film. The Exhibition will feature work directed by several visual Stylists associated with the NE INC. (the production company founded by RT! And his long time business Collaborator John Nadalin.) Some of the Featured Directors will be: Bruce McDonald, Charles Officer, MMVA nominated David Mewa, Marc Andre Debruyne, AND MMVA Nominated Cazhhmere.

The NE will be accepting donations to help support a local charity (REMIX PROJECT) that is an outreach to at risk youth.

Local Charity the Remix Project, an outreach program for at risk youth where RT! currently serves on the board of directors is a youth program that acts as an arts and cultural incubator in Toronto, Canada, North America’s cultural capital.
