Please join us for a pedestrian celebration of great Canadian culture
June 18th, 2015
Meeting at 1:45 PM sharp! (the intervention will take about 1 hour of your time)
At the Tim Hortons, Ultima Galleria 4986 Yonge St., North York (West side of Young St.) Between North York Centre & Sheppard-Young Stations.
Working with the idea that living in a society in which people are isolated from each other, this public intervention aims to make space wherein affinity and close proximity can become possible. Against the flood of images, the steady stream of communication, the vast blowing assault on the senses, focus is the best antidote. Perhaps through the pace of patience and endurance of lingering, a person could feel verified.
May 27-June 13, 2015 at 8-11. Opening May 27 from 7-11pm.
There will be a special performance at the opening by T. Cross, who's here from NYC, playing a piece based on the writings of Ulrike Meinhof when she was in prison.
Tania Cross was born in Worcester, Massachusetts in 1978 and has studied at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA, Hunter College in New York City, and The Universitat de Kunst in Berlin, Germany. In 2006 she worked on The Early Show: Video from 1969-1979 both the historical video exhibition at the Lubsdorf Gallery and the accompanying text. She is a co-founder of the noise band the Crippler and the heavy metal drum circle, Cripple Double. In 2013 she recorded a solo record "Meinhof" in Brooklyn, NY, where she has hosted a monthly noise and experimental showcase since 2014.
