Nine graduate students at Ryerson University and York University in the communications and culture program have banded together to create Make the World Your Salon: Modernist Salon Culture, an exhibit that resurrects the salon culture of the early twentieth century frequented by the bohemian artists of the day. The exhibit encompasses photography, artwork, and multi-media, and features graphic photography by New Yorker Carl Van Vechten; a reproduction of Marcel Duchamp’s With White Noise; and the screening of a documentary film about the Paris salon of Natalie Barney and her Sapphic circle.
Make the World Your Salon: Modernist Salon Culture opens with a reception tomorrow at 4 p.m. until 7p.m. The exhibition is located in the Modern Culture Multimedia Centre, on the third floor of 111 Gerrard Street East, and will be open weekdays from 9:00 a.m. until 1:30 pm. from December 1 until December 21, 2006. Admission is free.
