FASTWÜRMS at AGYU
After a summer in residency at the Art Gallery of York University, the FASTWÜRMS exhibition DONKY@NINJA@WITCH is set to open Wednesday, September 26, 6 to 9 pm. The show brings together new works with the re-staging of several of their key, influential Queen Street West storefront exhibitions produced over the last decade, installations that conflated Witch and Queer cultures. Part of the exhibition is a re-mix of elements from Swag & Shag (1995), Unisex: House of Bangs (1999), Blood & Swash, Denim Pox (2002), Pirate Head, Gusset Nation (2004), and Blood Clock (2005). New work includes Pink Donky and Ninja vs. Witch, a HD video production in the low-budget tradition of kung fu films, shot on location in Venice, Italy and Scarlet Hill, Ontario. The exhibition continues until Sunday, December 9 2007.
Take the free Performance Bus by Katie Bethune-Leamen on Wednesday, September 26 to the opening reception, departing from 100 McCaul St. at 6 pm sharp.
