The show is up! And Toronto, you've treated me so well! After a packed opening (no small feat considering there are multiple film festivals and an audio festival also happening right now) and a fun artist talk panel (see below), I'm packing up to head back to my little port city. What a whirlwind trip it's been.
Props to Madi Piller for the intriguing curatorial concept and for including me in such a great roster of artists. Kudos to Clint Enns for the smartypants essay. And much awe and respect to the TAIS team on the ground, who worked tirelessly to install all week last week: Jenn Snider (TAIS Operations Manager), Alex Nagy (Installation Tech), Evan DeRushie (TAIS President), and Felix Heeb (TAIS Vice-President).
One of my favourite things about this show is how diverse the work looks, but at the same time, how coherent we all were in responding to the curatorial prompt. If you are in Toronto between now and mid-December, please head up to 1411 Dufferin St. to check it out.
Many thanks to Arts Nova Scotia Presentation Grant for making my travel and participation in the installation, opening, and panel talk possible!
