Our Installations co-ordinator Tara Bursey has outdone even herself with this fantastic looking group show she has curated as an extension of City of Craft 2009 programming (on top of the 14 (!) installations she has planned for the weekend of the show). The opening reception doubles-up as a pre-craft show party. Come out and celebrate craft in the city!
Opening Reception: Friday, December 4th. 7-10pm Exhibition runs December 3-13, 2009. City of Craft takes place December 12-13th at The Theatre Centre, 1087 Queen St. West Location: Cream Tangerine Café At the Great Hall 1087 Queen Street West, Toronto
Craft processes and acts of making have a way of rooting people to their surroundings. People make or purchase craft items to enhance their domestic spaces and make themselves “at home.” Alternately, people take comfort in craft and art making when they find themselves in unfamiliar territory or when situated in transitional spaces such as on planes and buses and in waiting rooms. Home and Away (and In-Between) is an exhibition that strives to explore how the act of making enables us to relate to where we are.
Home and Away (and In-Between) is a thematic group exhibition of selected vendors, organizers and installation artists involved with this year’s City of Craft event. The exhibition also includes a few invited special guests artists. Home and Away will serve as a pre-fair party as well as a public preview of the wares in store at this year’s City of Craft. Please join us in celebrating our third awesome year!
