Gendai in dialogue with The Torontorians
Gendai in dialogue with The Torontonians, moderated by Darren O'Donnell
as part of:
Vectors first instalment closing reception: November 6, 2-5pm
The Torontonians are a collective of young artists based in Parkdale, Toronto initiated by Darren O'Donnell and Sanjay Ratnan. We are interested in all things, all ways and forever.
Darren O'Donnell is a writer, director, social acupuncturist, designer and Artistic Director of Mammalian Diving Reflex.
This special event is the third and last component of the first instalment of Gendai's new programming initiative, Vectors: Connections and Interventions. The closing reception takes place in conjunction with The Road to Asia Festival at the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre.
The journey of this mobile programming initiative starts from Gendai home base, the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre. Sitting at its initial point, Vectors attempts to explore and examine the conditions around the physical environment of Gendai and the context of its historical and cultural representations, thus to re-assess the role of a community based contemporary art organization.
