Pièce de Résistance

If you’re up for a little subversion on Thursday night from 5–7 p.m., check out our old pal Fauxreel‘s talk, Resistance in the City, at the Justina M. Barnicke Gallery at U of T (7 Hart House Circle). Done in association with Signals in the Dark: Art in Shadow of War, an exhibition opening that evening, Fauxreel will “talk about his work as a street artist and give a mini-demo/workshop on techniques and tactics for transforming mass media into a critique of itself.”
The reason why we keep talking about Fauxreel’s stuff is because it’s really, really good, and because Toronto needs more art like it, not less. (But we’ll have more on that soon.) If you’ve been curious about getting involved, this might be a good place to get some inspiration––both intellectually and physically––from one of this city’s masters (at his first public talk, no less!). Go, go, go.
