Found Footing is a video series presented by Whippersnapper Gallery and curated by Joshua Vettivelu, showcasing the work of Cora-Allan Wickcliffe, Amanda Boulos, Fallon Simard and Zinnia Naqvi accompanied by catalogue featuring the writing of Vince Rosario and Ariel Smith and a panel discussion facilitated by Deanna Bowen. This series brings together four emerging artists who have created work in response to preexisting moving images.

Whether it be old home movies, tourism films, protest documentation or vacation videos- the artists in this exhibition locate a sense of urgency in these preexisting moving images and strategically use them to explore experiences of intimacy, pride, family and accountability within larger conversations of colonialism, gender and state violence.
