Opening Reception & Publication Launch: October 28, 2010, 7pm – 10pm

Coming up to the year-end of BAGART's one-year adventure in Toronto, and reflecting on its zero sales record thus far, Gendai makes a last attempt to tackle the stagnant market by holding BAGART Toronto Sidewalk Sale at upArt: Contemporary Art Fair. Works by Toronto-based artists Emelie Chhangur, Barbara Balfour, Anitra Hamilton, Gordon Lebredt, and Daisuke Takeya, framed by Shanghai-based artist duo Birdhead, will be on sale for the cost of 88 Big Macs each. Accompanying the sale will be the launch of the publication, BAGART Toronto Shopping Guide, with texts by Gordon Lebredt, Earl Miller, and Yam Lau, to provide a critical context, and with the hope of boosting sales.

In Nov 2009, Gendai partnered with Art Metropole and signed a one-year contract with Birdhead to share the role as local representative for the BAGART (Birdhead Affordable Game) project Toronto. In the course of this contract year, Art Metropole is the sole agent for BAGART sales in the Toronto area and Gendai is responsible for facilitating installation and documenting the process of the project.

Samples of BAGART works are on display at Art Metropole store through the end of 2010.
