XPACE is proud to present FEAST 3:
FEAST (Funding Engaging Actions with Sustainable Tactics) Toronto is a series of community dinners and micro-funding events. During each dinner, artists, designers and groups are invited to present proposals for art- or design-based projects. Everyone attending the dinner votes on which project they would like to fund, and the project with the most votes is given a grant from the money raised from the ticket sales. The artist or group chosen will be invited back to the next FEAST to present their completed project.

Proposals are due by Wednesday, September 7, 2011

The Sound of Art at Mercer Union

A project by Paddy Johnson
Live performance at Mercer Union
Thursday, August 11th, 9pm
Admission: FREE

Find out what art sounds like in the hands of artists Paul Slocum and Lewis Kaye. Thursday 11 August, the musicians will remix Art Fag City’s limited edition LP, The Sound of Art, a record composed of sounds heard in New York galleries, museums and project spaces over the last five years.

Just what’s on this album? Work by artists well-known and not-so-well-known. Difficult electronics. Sounds of stampeding animals, Hebrew prayer, a transformer fire, a children's carousel. One hundred carpenters pounding 10,000 nails. Field recordings of recordings by guitar genius John Fahey, and archival sound pieces by the pioneering conceptualist Lawrence Weiner. An iPod drum circle and thoughts on nostalgia. Also, yes, a toy monkey with cymbals.
