Visualizing a Sound Festival | Robert Szkolnicki (MB)
Over the past ten years, Robert Szkolnicki has been diligently photographing all of the events at send + receive. What began as a hobby born out of personal interest has steadily developed into a long-standing commitment to the festival. His beautiful images have become the core of our visual archive, and we are so grateful for his care and dedication. His generosity not only to send + receive but also to all of the artists who have been a part of the festival is invaluable.
For this exhibition Szkolnicki has selected of some of his favourite images through the years. These beautiful portraits give a peek into the breadth and individuality of the artists who have travelled from across Canada and around the world to perform, exhibit and discuss their work at send + receive over the last decade.
Stunning and memorable, these images celebrate the uniqueness of each artist as well as the distinct eye of the man behind the camera.
Special thanks to Gallery Lacosse for the generous sponsorship and framing support. Presented in Partnership with Forth.

The Redactions (2015–) constitute an ongoing exploration of ideas surrounding the extraction of “peaks,” or “transients,” from geographically and thematically relevant audio materials given a particular realization or performance. The outcome can take any stylistic form, from classic musique concrète to polyrhythmic chaos and solemn, minimalism-inspired canons.
