COVID-19 Policy

Images Festival is committed to providing an accessible festival and continues to work to reduce barriers to participation at our events. This year, we are implementing a COVID-19 policy to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission for all, and to prioritize the participation of people who are disability-identified, immunocompromised, or part of an otherwise vulnerable group.

The following guidelines will be in place: Self-Assessment: We ask that staff and participants screen themselves for COVID-19 before visiting the exhibition.

Images Festival is partnering with Ace Hotel in Toronto for a yearlong partnership to curate their inaugural Artist in Residence (AiR) Program. Four artists have been invited to participate in quarterly, month-long residencies at the hotel followed by an exhibition of their work. The residency takes place under the theme of (g)host, extending the 2023 festival’s central inquiry and foregrounding moving images to contend with ideas at the intersection of archives, spirit, care, and hospitality.

The third artist in residence is Eve Tagny! Eve Tagny is a Tiohtià:ke/Montreal-based artist. Her practice considers gardens and disrupted landscapes as mutable sites of personal and collective memory — inscribed in dynamics of power, colonial histories and their legacies. Weaving lens-based mediums, installation, text and performance, she explores spiritual and embodied expressions of grief and resiliency, in correlation with nature’s rhythms, cycles and materiality.

The Ace Hotel has long nurtured the work of emerging artists. During her Artist in Residence stay, Eve will develop work that responds to the context of Ace Hotel Toronto and their experience there. At the conclusion of their residency, Eve’s work will be showcased to the community with an exhibition.

Eve Tagny's residency is supported by facilities and equipment access in partnership with Gallery 44 Centre for Contemporary Photography.
