a window with art in it, presumably on Main St., and I'm guessing that is Rosine Kouamen standing in it
Windows on Main featuring new work by Rosine Kouamen and Rahul Mitra at the corner of Main St and Winbern st. on Thursday, November 1st, 2012 at 7pm. That's right by Tacos-a-GoGo which means you can have a cheap tasty treat and look at art. Bonus!
City Council Meeting by Aaron Landsman, Mallory Catlett and Jim Findlay at Palm Center, 2nd Floor Courtroom, November 1, 2012 from 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm. To use Claire Bishop's term, this is a piece of participatory artwork, reproducing a city council meeting using volunteer "actors"--including maybe you! You can read more about it here. It will be performed tomorrow at the El Dorado Ballroom and Saturday at noon at Diverse Works, but the Palm Center courtroom seems like the most ideal setting for it.
A micro-collage by Sandy Ewen
Projection & Amplification by Sandy Ewen at Spacetaker ARC, 6 pm, November 2 (running through December 14). The word here is "micro-collages," collages of materials so small that they must be blown up (either on paper or via projection) to be seen. This exhibit includes a bunch of musical performances (the artist is also a guitarist), both on the opening night and many subsequent days during its run.
Feet, eyeballs and wings: art by Sharon Engelstein
Sharon Engelstein: I like that very much a lot at Devin Borden Gallery, 6 pm – 8 pm, November 3 (through December 22). Wax and ceramic sculptures. Engelstein writes, "I recently fell in love with wax." Come see if wax loves her back!
A giant Italian ice by Bert Long
Update: This event has been cancelled.
And this just scratches the surface for what looks like a busy weekend, with shows opening at Box 13, PG Contemporary, CAMH, EMERGEncy Room, Williams Tower Gallery, East End StudioGallery and much more. Apparently everyone has had time to decompress from the art fairs and do their own things again.
