[ACTUAL DATE OF THIS POST: JAN 5 2016]
I recently moved into new #studio #digs in theÂ #Junction Triangle #neighbourhoodÂ of #Toronto – a new #space organized and maintained by the good folks of #AkinCollective – namely, #OliverPauk and #MichaelVickers – my thanks to them.
I was honoured by the invite to give a talk about my current interests, influences, and inspirations – by my friend and mentor, Keith Cole, to his Intro to Visual Culture class at Seneca College in North York – near my old stomping grounds, where I grew up.
Pleased to contribute a print ofÂ Hitching Post [Syunik, Armenia]Â to Hit Parade! An Exhibition in Celebration of World Pride 2014 – at Toronto’s p|m gallery – from June 24 to July 6 – in support of the Will Munro Memorial Fund for Queers Living with Cancer. Opening reception is June 24, 6-10pm.
If memory serves, I recall that I first wrote down these words almostÂ four years ago. It was only more recently, though, that I foundÂ myself spelling them out in staples – so, I guess they have resonated somehow. It has been fun to see this work appear, this past February,Â in a special issue of KAPSULA magazine on the theme of “Making Love” andÂ to see it go to a good home for a good cause, just a few days ago,Â as a print for Xpace’sÂ 10th AnniversaryÂ Fundraiser.
