Saralee James’s large oeuvre of photography, film, video, and sound work, produced over more than twenty-five years, ranges from backstage at a gay club in Vancouver, the ‘edges’ of wedding parties in Queen Elizabeth Park, wrestling matches, pool halls and other sites of “men at play”, to a Guatemalan refugee camp in Chiapas, Mexico, an earthquake-torn Mexico City, revolution in Nicaragua, activism in the middle of the Arctic Ocean, and homeless in New York City. The work in this exhibition spans seventeen years.
Supported by the Canada Council, The National Film Board of Canada Pacific Centre, New School Teachers Society, The Leon & Thea Koerner Foundation and individual donations.
