Established in 2012, the Live Art Series runs concurrently with the Festival main and offers a platform for experimental and experiential approaches to performance.

Artists are asked to submit a project proposal that is no more than 3 pages. Works that you may have presented elsewhere are welcomed, though they are especially interested in artists building a project specifically for the Festival.

SummerWorks will offer you a fee for your work. This fee will be negotiated between the Festival and the artist, and will depend upon the scope of the work, and whether the work is something for which the Festival can charge an entry fee. Submission fee is 10$

Fogo Island Artist Residency, Newfoundland

Fogo Island Arts is a residency-based contemporary art venue for artists, filmmakers, writers, musicians, curators, designers, and thinkers from around the world.
Established in 2008, Fogo Island Arts is located off the coast of Newfoundland in Canada. With the opening of the Fogo Island Inn in 2013, Fogo Island Arts will enter a new phase of its evolution, expanding its program to include exhibitions at the Inn, publications produced in collaboration with international imprints, and partnerships with public institutions globally. These initiatives are part of a social enterprise-based business model that will support the economic viability of the Fogo Island Inn and the growth of tourism on Fogo Island.
The programs at Fogo Island Arts provide alternatives to more traditional international residencies and public art galleries in North America — in part due to the resourcefulness and creativity of Fogo Islanders, which provides a vital framework for the organization’s activities.
The residency program brings contemporary artists and researchers from around the world to live and work on Fogo Island and Change Islands. The program welcomes the participation of artists working in a wide range of disciplines, including but not limited to: visual arts, new media, design, music, dance, writing and film. For its 2013-14 residencies, Fogo Island Arts is seeking proposals from curators for projects to be presented within the context of the organization's Education program.

April Programming at Xpace Opening Reception

Xpace Cultural Centre, 

2-303 Lansdowne Ave (Between College and Dundas)
Friday, April 12, 2013
7- 11pm

Please join us for our Spring 2013 round of Programming. There will be snacks, drinks and artists will be in attendance. Hope to see you there!

Main Space
An Illuminated iDentity
as part of Images Festival
Curated by David Hanes
With Emilie Gervais, Olivia Erlanger, Mary Kidd & Sarah Butterill, Jennifer Chan, Matthew Jarvis Wall, Sarah Wong, Jenna Crook and Connor Crawford 

An Illuminated iDentity brings together 9 artists exploring what cultural identity and individuality looks like in an increasingly immersive digital world. As technology is integrated with daily life, presentations of identity frequently are mediated through this cybernetic lens. An Illuminated iDentity questions what it means to be an individual and how our cultural identities are formed when narratives merge exponentially with digital technologies.

Window Space
The Shelf 
VSVSVS make a series of objects

For their installation in Xpace's Window Gallery, the artist collective VSVSVS plays a sculpture game. Following a series of (arbitrary) rules in a battle against the tyranny of choice, when the game is complete they are left with a sequence of objects that speaks to the process of working collaboratively while valuing the individual. Each object is created as a response to the object preceding it, gradually revealing their shared material fetish, telepathic abilities, and moments of stubborn individualism. Finally, through the magic of the grid the work is evenly distributed with no one thing prioritized over the others.

Project Space
William Christopher Ellis is Dead
Created by Jordan Tannahill
Performance by WIlliam Christopher Ellis 
on April 12th 7pm-9pm

William Christopher Ellis is Dead investigates the malleability of biography, portraiture, and the artist-muse relationship. Jordan Tannahill attempts to fill in the gaps of his partner Will's life before they met and became lovers; fetishizing his humble beginnings in PEI to imagining a life for him as a Maritime hustler-turned-tragic-David Lynch-heroine who moves to the big city to make it in the movies. Filmed over the two years, it is both a love letter and a document of their relationship thus-far.

External Space
This Goes Out To All My Girls
Elise Boudreau Graham

Located on the OCAD U campus, in the Learning Zone
March 19th- April 23rd, 2013. 

Minus the flashy sets, costumes and props, artist Elise Boudreau Graham mimics the choreography, from subtle shrugs to full body convulsions, used in Beyoncé's Run The World (Girls) music video. Graham operates within the pop icon's system as a method of revealing the essence of both Beyoncé and her own body language. This Goes Out To All My Girls probes pop culture and its use of female icons as conduits to perpetuate damaging abstractions of femininity.

Elise Boudreau Graham is an interdisciplinary artist whose work transpires in the space between personal relationships and the politics of the everyday. She likes to read critical theory, watch bad television, and take to the streets. She lives and works in Halifax, Nova Scotia and will receive a BFA from NSCAD University in Spring 2013.

FADO Peformance, Calls for Submissions

Tonight! Come see Variations on Absurdity by Maryam Taghavi, beginning at 8 pm. $10/$5 for students.

Born and raised in Iran, Maryam Taghavi is a Toronto-based interdisciplinary artist. She received her BFA in 2008 from Emily Carr University (Vancouver). Her work includes drawing, photography, site-specific installation, and performance. Her practice is spread across social and spatial paradigms (the artist has been traveling between Iran and Canada since her graduation), and investigates the enigmatic relations between then and now, self and other, fiction and non-fiction. Examining the corporeal and psychological exchanges between architecture, domestic objects and the human body, she creates different scenarios for contemplation and forms of reception. She has participated in a number of exhibitions in Canada, Mexico and Iran.
"Fascinated by fleeting realms in social and spatial paradigms, my practice investigates enigmatic realtions between then and now, self and other, and fiction and non-fiction. I examine corporeal and psychological exchange in relation to architectural sites, domestic objects and human body to create a different scenario for contemplation and forms of reception."

FADO Performances, Exhibitions, Calls for Submissions

The performances for FADO's emerging artist series begin this Friday, March 8th with an ongoing performance by Golboo Amani. She will be performing every Friday and Saturday from 2 to 6 pm.

Golboo Amani is  Toronto-based interdisciplinary artist, who creates works focused on process and research through a variety of mediums including photography, performance, space intervention, digital media, and participatory practice. Concerned with the configurations of power imbedded within institutional structures of knowledge production, Golboo's practice centers on pedagogical practices and artist-run counter culture. Through cross-disciplinary collaborative projects, the artist's recent bodies of work involve facilitating inclusive spaces of agency, organizing sites for generous skill sharing and embodied acts of reclamation. A graduate of Emily Carr, Golboo has exhibited work and curated exhibitions in Toronto, Vancouver, Mexico City and Manila in the Phillipines.

In addition to Golboo Amani's ongoing performances, this friday will feature Planeteria by Cressida Kocienski. Beginning at 8 pm, admission is 10$/5$ for students.

Cressida Kocienski holds an MFA in Art Writing from Goldsmiths, London. Working between video, performance, and text, her research concerns spatial production and modes of narration. She collaborates with architects Nishat Awan and Phil Langley as OPENkhana, with Suzanne Harris-Brandts as O[S]R, and is co-editor of experimental publishing platform The Institute of Immaterialism. Kocienski was filmmaker in residence with Decolonizing Architecture Artists Residency, West Bank (2011).
She has worked collaboratively within Art on the Underground; James Taylor Gallery; South London Gallery; ICA, and Resonance FM.

She has performed at Whitechapel Gallery, London (2010) and Tenderpixel, London (2012).

The list of additional performances can be found here.
Also a reminder that the Window and Project Spaces will be open for viewing throughout the month. The Window Space this month features Ella Dawn McGeough and Laura McCoy is exhibiting in the Project Space.
This week we have an opening by Xpace intern David Hanes at NO FOUNDATION, 1086 Queen West, a project space of Katherine Mulherin Contemporary Art Projects.

David Hanes' Totally Barely features two new bodies of sculptural works addressing cultural developments in the use and distribution of images and objects.

The digital images in the series Aware have been culled from online image searches of popular works of art, manipulated with Photoshop's "content aware" function, and printed on nearly sheer polyester nylon fabric and stretched to look like a painting. Somewhere between photography, sculpture and painting, Aware could be understood as image-objects that are innately a combination of all three mediums.

The smaller sculptural works in Hanes' Popular Objects series were created using trending items purchased on eBay. The objects themselves are coupled with digital photographs of themselves face mounted to plexiglass. The shiny photographs act as a digital mirror, simultaneously reflecting and cataloguing these objects. Together, these two series of sculptural works aim to represent the translation of auratic value from the dematerialized online world into physical space, questioning the possibility of these extracted objects holding any of their original desirability.

David Hanes is a visual artist whose trans-media practice explores the space bridging lived experience and art. His work describes a personal relationship to a visual culture that is linked to the underlying currency of everyday life. Exhibiting in both offline and online communities, Hanes has shown work in Toronto, Los Angeles, New York, Syracuse, Kansas City, Vancouver, London (UK) and the Internet. Hanes runs the "sincerity" blog and is the co-founder of the online project

He currently lives and works in Toronto.

The artist writing for Ella Dawn McGeough's work in the Window Space has also recently finished a window display of her very own for Magic Pony. Diana Lynn VanderMuelen's work can be seen at 680 Queen West for the month of May.

Diana Lynn VanderMuelen is a graduate of York University with a Bachelor in Fine Arts. She has exhibited works in various group shows in Toronto including at Narwhal Art Projects, Oz Studios, Twist Gallery, The Gladstone Hotel (which she also co-curated), the 2009 apology project for Nuit Blanche in Liberty Village, and Eyelevel Gallery in Halifax, NS. Diana is an interdiscliplinary artist whose work features drawing, painting, collage, printmaking and installation. This is Diana's second installation project, the first being a one night installation for The Whippersnapper Gallery's fundraiser for the New Traditions festival, featuring Brooklyn musicians Japanther, Toronto's Boys Who Say No and Absolutely Free.
