THE QUEEN WEST ART-SCUM GARAGE SALE
Aug 30, 2005 - Sep 04, 2005

QUEEN WEST ARTISTS JOIN ISTVAN KANTOR at the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art

Istvan Kantor’s most recent project INVISIBLE MONUMENT, where he will mix his blood into the concrete to be used for the construction of the new AGO, is gaining sympathy among Queen West artists.
A group exhibition entitled THE BLOOD MUST CONTINUE TO FLOW, hosted by the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art (MOCCA) located on Queen street West, will be the next demonstration of Kantor’s evolving campaign to align the local art scene and public on his side. At the press conference on Tuesday, Aug 30 at 2pm., Kantor and his Konspirators will give statements on issues of artistic freedom and institutional authority to introduce the exhibition.

The show will take place at the MOCCA from Aug. 30st to Sept. 4th and is open for participation to anyone interested in Kantor’s critical attitude, anyone brave enough to join the garage sale style conspiracy event produced by the controversial GG Award winning art-crime mastermind himself.

Among the confirmed artists-participants are Napoleon Broussau, Eldon Garnet, Louise Liliefeldt, Miklos Legrady, John Abrams, Phil Anderson, Boryana Rossa, Leif Harmsen and many others.

An anti-reception with performances will take place on Thursday Sept 1st at 6pm.
