The Art Gallery of York University (AGYU) and the Trans Bisexual Lesbian Gays Allies at York (TBLGAY), a student-run service, will present Queer Night with DJ Cozmic Cat as she spins and spits with the optical flow assemblage of video artist Jeremy Bailey tomorrow night.
Queer Night will take place Nov. 20 at 9:30pm at the Underground in the Student Centre, Keele campus.
Bailey, who has a master of fine arts in art video from Syracuse University, is co-founder of the award-winning artist collective 640 480. His work has been described by Filmmaker, the magazine of independent film, as “a one-man revolution on the way we use video, computers and our bodies to create art”. Bailey lives and works in Toronto, where his work can be viewed, rented and acquired through Vtape.
After a decade of spinning in Philadelphia, DJ Cozmic Cat now spins and produces music out of Toronto. The five-time, award-winning Canadian DJ and producer has rocked dance floors in New York City, Brooklyn, Puerto Rico, Canada and Australia. She holds residencies all over Toronto, and has an album due out at the end of 2009.
