Kal Barteski: Polar Bear Artist

BY KAL BARTESKI
@ VOL 36 ON NOV 22, 2018

Artist and activist Kal Barteski is a notable figure in the arts scene in Winnipeg who is most famously known for her playful script work and polar bear art. She calls herself a "polar bear artist", and rightfully so as she's successfully spread her work throughout the city and beyond. Here in her PechaKucha Night Winnipeg talk, Kal talks about polar bears (of course), why they're important, and what you can learn from them. She also talks about her work and her initiatives not only in Winnipeg but in Churchill, Manitoba, the polar bear capital of the world.

Kal's talk was recorded live at PechaKucha Night Winnipeg Vol. 36, on November 22 2018, at the Park Theatre.

The Great Coffee Caper

BY ANDRÉ CORRÊA DO LAGO
@ BRAZILIAN LIFESTYLE POWERED BY PECHAKUCHA ON SEP 16, 2015

In celebration of International Coffee Day:

"Help us find the last [missing] Fujita panel so we can rebuild the Brazil Cafe in Ginza!"

In "The Great Coffee Caper " from Tokyo's Brazilian Lifestyle Powered by PechaKucha, Brazilian Ambassador to Japan,  André Corrêa do Lago shares his piqued curiosity when, as a teenager in Sao Paulo, acquiring a peculiar book of Brazilian architecture that had been published in Japan, it's last page stunning him with images the "Brazil Cafe", a coffee house in a posh corner of Tokyo for its most chic denizens, inside which was decorated with contemporary furniture, its walls adorned by a magnificent mural painted by Japan's most famous artist of the time, Léonard Tsugouharu Foujita.

Ambassador Lago's interest in the book, and in the cafe, never wavered and when appointed to his position in Japan, and in an effort to re-capture Japan's shared love for Brazilian coffee, he commissioned his staff to research the cafe's history, uncovering a caper of a tale, which has led to the quest for a missing painting and a restoration of Tokyo's once legendary "Brazil Cafe."

Kitchen Counterpoint

BY JULIAN BEUTEL
@ VOL 35 ON SEP 06, 2018

And now for something really special.

Musician and composer Julian Beutel had a different idea of how to make use of the PechaKucha Night format. For this "talk", Julian did a live musical performance using a pre-recorded track he composed and did the sound effects right on stage. The piece itself revolves around a central space, the kitchen, and the cast of characters that use it. Julian developed Kitchen Counterpoint in collaboration with Angie Shyr and Seth Boyden. 

Julian's performance was recorded live at PechaKucha Night Winnipeg Vol. 35, on September 6, 2018, at the Park Theatre.
