To ring in the new year, the Alternator is proud to open two shows Friday January 8th, 2016! This event is free and open to the public; light refreshments will be served. //WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE THE PROBLEM?// Fern Helfand, Neon Kohkom, Tannis Nielsen & Samuel Roy-Bois A young Caucasian boy’s cheeks are streaked with war paint as he proudly dons a feathered Indigenous war bonnet.

Issues of cultural appropriation, stereotyping, racism and privilege aim to challenge the viewer and to prompt them to think about how they too might be implicated no matter how innocent their actions might be. //NEGLECT// Mathew Glenn Inspired by a Japanese philosophy of beauty that values the aesthetics of weathered and flawed materials, Neglect pays homage to the unappreciated. With this investigation of neglected objects, Glenn seeks to challenge the way we look at others, as well as ourselves. he Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art is a non-profit organization dedicated to the development of our creative community.

Double Opening Reception - A Scanner Ubiquity & As Composed by Poets and Liars

Please join us for a double reception celebrating our two new exhibitions: A Scanner Ubiquity - Kevin Day and Nathan McNinch Ever wondered where all the personal information that we feed into the Internet ends up? So do Vancouver artists Nathan McNinch and Kevin Day. Their exhibition, A Scanner Ubiquity, collates samples of seemingly useless but readily available public information and turns it into works of art. Using kinetic sculptures throughout the gallery, their works examine, in various ways, everyday information and the use of that data in common applications. A participatory installation piece takes the form of several machines that retrieve physiological information (such as height and density) from the nearby audience; in real time, the data is then continuously printed on paper, creating something similar to a polygraph using the gathered information. Exhibition on show from January 23 - March 7. AND As Composed by Poets and Liars - Kelsie Balehowsky and Lucas Glenn Co.(Members' Gallery) As Composed by Poets and Liars is an exhibition of collaborative prints created by two recent UBCO graduates, artists Kelsie Balehowsky and Lucas Glenn Co. The series, incorporating Kelsie's photography and the Company's typography, explores the emotional, rhetorical, and personal connections that music can have with an audience. Just under ten images, varying in intensity and subject matter, refer to their own interpretive processes and at the same time express conundrums of personal truth and authorship. Exhibition on show from January 30 to February 21. All events and exhibitions are free and open to the public.

Thank You for Sharing is a collection of paper-collage collaborations between Jeff Ellom and Lucas Glenn Co. The collages, mimicking the layouts of popular websites, are made up of found images and text. Swal-low and Thank You for Sharing form part of the Alternator's participation in Culture Days 2013.

Intersections - Okanagan Pride 2013 at the Alternator

The Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art is pleased to present Intersections, an exhibition of six artists in the LGBTQ* (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, queer and other) community. Intersections is presented in conjunction with the 2013 Okanagan Pride Festival in Kelowna, BC. Taking place in the Members’ Gallery at the Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art, Intersections offers a chance to share with one another the intricacies of our own personal journeys, the paths we have already taken and the experiences still to come. For artists Daniel Oledzki, Jacklyn Harris, Deneige Nadeau, Kevin Michael Witzke, Shannon Lester and Dean Krawchuk, the mileage varies. The poetic work of Deneige Nadeau, a recent graduate of Emily Carr University of Art + Design, engages snippets of theoretical text with photographs of her own body; while Daniel Eric Oledzki explores the areas where media, gender and capitalism overlap. The Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art welcomes you to visit our space between August 10th and 17th to view the exhibition. Please join us for a reception and official Okanagan Pride 2013 opening event on Saturday, August 10th at 7:00 pm at the Alternator Centre. This is a free public event.

Darren Williams Performance

The Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art invites you to attend a live performance by Canadian improvisational saxophonist Darren Williams. Williams has been winning over audiences in Western Canada with his unforgettable performances that stretch musical boundaries. His performance at the Alternator on August 9 wraps up an 11 city cross-Canada tour funded by the Canada Council for the Arts and the Canadian Circuit for Improvising Musicians. Fresh from his appearance at the 2013 Vancouver International Jazz Festival, audiences can expect to be mesmerized by Williams’ incredible array of extended techniques on the saxophone as composition, improvisation, and physical endurance are explored within solo performance. For his performance at the Alternator, Williams will be joined by local artists James Masz who will perform a solo set on electronics and join Williams in a duo performance, unleashing a sonic cluster of roiling improvisations. Darren Williams is a British Columbia based saxophonist and bassoonist who pushes the limits of extended instrumental technique into regions that are lyrical, terrifying and uncanny. Williams holds a BFA in music performance from York University and has studied with Casey Sokol, David Mott, George Lewis, and Francois Houle. James Masz has released two albums since 2009 and performs a wide gamut of downtempo, noise, improvisational and minimalist techno. Masz’s past collaborators include Natalia Leigh, Darren Williams, multi-disciplinary artist Erik Rezepka and Berlin-based filmmaker Matthias Fritsch.

Opening reception: Noxious Sector - Nightmare Inductions

The Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art is pleased to present Nightmare Inductions, an art installation and exhibition guiding participants through a meditative experience unique to each viewer. Through sound, light projection, and photograph, Noxious Sector artist collective will induce an altered mental state where imagination meets perception. Nightmare Inductions, taking place in the Alternator’s gallery, invites willing participants to lie down on mats, put on headphones, and to slip into an altered state specific to a common nightmare. Projection will be used to stimulate brainwave patterns unique to the nightmare, and photos will be presented in assisting the effects. Outside of the gallery, through a psychic and multimedia exploration, Noxious Sector will reevaluate what it means to loiter, haunt, and occupy. Banners, flags, and labels positioned in Kelowna will declare who is haunting the area, and when. Noxious Sector is an ongoing collaborative endeavor by Canadian artists Ted Hiebert, Doug Jarvis, and Jackson 2Bears, dedicated to the exploration of alternative cognitive function, the paranormal and the absurd. Conceived as a formalized forum for informal inquiry, Noxious Sector projects take the form of perdormances, curatorial initiatives, and artistic collaborations. Their endeavors have taken place Canada-wide and internationally. Both Haunting Kelowna and Nightmare Inductions are projects that have been refined and explored in other locations. Their past hauntings have involved surveillance (by camera and otherwise) of alleys, streets, and, on one occasion, Stephen Harper. The Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art welcomes you to visit our space between July 26th and September 6th, to view the exhibition. Please join us for an opening reception on Friday, July 26th and an artist talk on Saturday July 27th, at 3pm. Both events will take place at The Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art and are free to the public.

Tangible: An Exhibition of Interactive Artwork

Tangible is an interactive art exhibition showcasing the works of a collaboration of student artists dedicated to exploring the physical qualities of viewing art. It was conceived to examine the unique approach of inviting the viewer to actively participate in the looking process through the ability to physically interact with the artwork by utilizing senses that are not traditionally appropriated to the viewing of artwork, such as touch, smell, movement and auditory experiences. This method of ‘viewing’ allows the audience to gain a deeper understanding of the artwork thus a heightened appreciation for it, and it is in this process that the viewer and the artist become a collaborative force in the making of each art piece. The idea was birthed out of Gourley’s child-like frustration of being bound by barriers and social constraints in the art world, which are accompanied by a strict ‘no touch’ policy. This policy serves to create a strong distinction between ‘Art’ and its audience. This exhibition aims to break those superior notions and bridge the gap. Through this process she hopes to entice a wider audience to engage with art and bring to light the integral part the viewer plays in making art what it is.
