GAME-CITY
Curated by Craig Leonard

 

GAME-CITY is a series of urban experiments across Yorkville, Kensington Market and Queen St. by Jessica Thompson, Paige Gratland, Charlene Lau, SR Palm, and the Grey Sweatsuit Revolution, culminating with performances by Charlie Black, 640 480 Video Collective and the Pauls and the Band of Outsiders.

 

These artists disrupt conventions by disorienting visual, spatial and auditory perceptions. Expect a range of approaches, from the subtle (Thompson, Gratland, Grey Sweatsuit Revolution), to the theatrical (Lau, SR Palm Black, 640 480 and the Pauls). The audience is encouraged to be as nomadic as the projects themselves as they move through the city. Various times and locations are indicated on the schedule, allowing audience members to take in individual projects, or spend their whole day with the works as they link up with each other.

 

The Emerging Artists series was initiated by Fado in 2002 as a way of highlighting the work of new and emerging artists. Previous projects have highlighted the work of artists based in Toronto, Kingston and Regina. This series selected and coordinated by emerging artist Craig Leonard, features performances and interventions by local artists using a variety of media.
