RECEPTION> Sun Jun 10, 2pm (see below)
'The Canadian Romantic' is a larger-than-life character by artist and entertainer Robert Dayton that explores the grey area of impossibilities that intersect with Canada and romance. This window display will revolve around these notions and this persona.
RECEPTION> Sun Jun 10, 2pm
Come out to WNDW 4 for a picnic in Hillcrest Park (directly across from Roadside Attractions) — featuring maple cookies, assorted goodies, and a brief in character performance by The Canadian Romantic!
WNDW, curated by Mark Laliberte, is a multi-site project that links a cross-section of Toronto’s independent street-level window galleries for the first time, exploring how vacant windows in downtown cores are being transformed into unquestionably accessible, 24-hour walk-by galleries.
Taking place throughout June, artists Robert Dayton, Larry Eisenstein, Happy Sleepy (the collaborative duo of Marc Ngui and Magda Wojtyra), Eunice Luk and Magda Trzaski take on these playful and sometimes challenging spaces, presenting five solo artworks united under a common curatorial umbrella.
WNDW is the latest installment of the 'Carousel Exhibition Series' — occasional gallery shows that bring together groups of artists, who have, through their practice and aesthetic, strongly connected to the community developing around Carousel magazine — and each of the artists involved in this project appears in the pages of CAROUSEL 29, out on newsstands in June!
The article “The Gallery is Always Open” by Jason Paradiso also appears in the issue, as an accompaniment to the exhibition.
