Kevin Schmidt’s EDM House (2013), a new work commissioned by Fogo Island Arts, will be presented at the Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver, as a part of a solo exhibition by the artist. Based in Vancouver and Berlin, Schmidt’s show comprises a survey of recent works, including a second major new piece, High Altitude Balloon Harmless Amateur Radio Equipment (2013). Complementing his CAG exhibition, Fogo Island Cinema, Fogo Island, Newfoundland will present screenings of EDM House over the course of six weeks this summer.
Schmidt is best known for addressing notions of displaced spectacle where remarkable events containing elements of urban culture are staged against the backdrop of the natural world.
