"CLUBSCAPE " : June's Art Exhibit

The Steam Whistle gallery is revealing the afterhours world of electronic dance music with "CLUBSCAPE";a photography exhibit by Visualbass Photography.


 

Steam Whistle Brewing and Visualbass Photography are shedding light on the afterhours world of electronic dance music (EDM) with the launch of  “CLUBSCAPE”; an art exhibit that documents the landscapes, cultures and personalities that have risen within the genres of electronic music.


In this group exhibition, Tobias Wang and Conrad M. Stocks showcase each of their interpretations of “CLUBSCAPE.” The photographs capture the immense energy and mood of the crowd as well as the DJs responsible for evoking its every movement. 


Words from the artists: 


Sometimes these spaces are a riot of human bodies, exploding lights, colours and sounds. At other times they are darker, intimate and "to the left and down that alleyway." But beyond the crowd, the focus can shift to an individual or the "nature" of club life. In moments where people converge to let go and get lost, it’s easy to find examples of behaviour that range from smile inducing to straight out bizarre.  



Tobias began documenting the rave and nightclub scene in 1999. In the past 15 years, he’s worked with some of the world’s most prominent DJs. He is the go-to photographer for Canada’s largest EDM festivals. Conrad has been moonlighting as a photographer in the nightlife scene since 2011. Since meeting three photographers backstage at his first festival, he's spent his weekends camera in hand. Together, their photographs illuminate this often-misunderstood culture by demonstrating the beautiful effect of music on the masses.


The exhibit will be on display during the month of June 2014.


Opening Reception: June 4th 2014 7-11 p.m.
