All the Talent Trust artists featured at Nocturne Halifax

This year's Nocturne: Art at Night event is going to be spectacular.  This Halifax art festival celebrates Nova Scotia's visual artists with installations at local art galleries, free-standing displays to experience, and arts programming that inspires anyone and everyone to experience art in a new way.  Running from October 13 to 15, several Talent Trust scholarship recipients will have works on display.  Here's where to find them:

Arjun Lal: Anchor Artist 

"Full Moon is a 3 day portal accessible throughout the Nocturne Art at Night Festival.

How do we move when we are stuck?

I have been searching for portals. The ephemeral moments where places and times intersect and create gateways into other spaces. Accessible points within the universe that generate movements and changes."

Location: Alderney Landing
2 Ochterloney St, Dartmouth, NS B2Y 4W1
Wheelchair accessible

Letitia Fraser: Anchor Artist

"It Takes Generations: my becoming an artist has been a journey that started long before I was born. The struggles and challenges faced by my African Nova Scotian ancestors have cleared a path that I could emerge at just the right time – in THIS time and space."

Viewing for the Ondaatje Courtyard: Oct 13th, 14th, 15th 7 pm-midnight

Viewing for Windsor Foundation Lecture Theatre (wheelchair accessible): Oct 13th, 5 pm-9 pm, Oct 15th, 6 pm-midnight

Ada Denil

"Aeolian City: this wind-activated work will be installed in various locations throughout the city. Constructed with visually subtle components, you may hear it before you see it… Aeolian vibrations (named for Aeolus, the Greek god of the winds) are the source of the sound: when they vibrate in the wind they produce mysterious harmonic overtones which float and dissipate into the general soundscape, at times consumed or overridden by the noise of the city."

Multiple locations. Find Ada’s map at Propeller on Gottingen St., MacPhee Centre, and Downtown Halifax Business Commission, 2015 Gottingen St., 50 Queen St. 1546 Barrington St.

Excel Garay 

"Meet Me at the Dinner Table: three audio-recorded voices are heard over a dinner table but any physical clues of who these individuals are remain absent.

The materiality of this sound installation reflects on the complicated detached memories of diasporic communities from their food systems due to effects of migration, ecological shifts in food production, or recipes lost in time. Each voice yearns for experiences they no longer have access to—and their desires speak volumes."

Location: Khyber Centre for the Arts
1880 Hollis St, Wheelchair accessible 

Jacinte Armstrong 

"Carry the Spark is an evening of live performance and art inspired by the legacies of the environmental movement in Mi’kma’ki /Nova Scotia, featuring the work of extraordinary local artists."

Shauna MacLeod, Brandt Eisner

"I Am What I Am is a group show based on constructs of identity. In this travelling and ever-evolving group show participating artists have been asked to showcase work that asks us to probe ideas surrounding who we are, how we are perceived, and why does it all matter?"
