and how the Projection series is not as well publicized as the other exhibits at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal.

We point out how Omer Fast had been part of a previous exhibit at DHC. We talk about the subtitles, the logistics of showing a video, commercials on European TV and Omer Fast on YouTube.

Eloi wants to know how Omer fast compares to Michel de Broin and Eve Sussman and thinks that the Musée d’art contemporain undermined themselves and ponders their future and paying artists. And Zeke closes the show by asking the Trivia Question (email us the answer and win a fabulous prize!)

Eloi also recorded and interview with Omer Fast (9:28)
