This year's LuminaTO festival (June 7, 2008) will focus on Queen West's artistic contribution from the mid 1970s to the mid 1980s... with a special focus on OCA (now OCAD), music, and performance arts. One of my tasks is to help organize the display of artifacts from the day: posters, photos, album covers, newspaper items, weird objects ... all the things that might contextualize the time.
We have the use of the "Great Hall" at OCAD for the day of June 7 for this exhibition of what production creator Martin calls "memorabilia". I am asking for contributions to this exhibition... anything that might evoke the period that you would be willing to share for a day.
If you are interested in submitting an artifact, please obtain a form for acknowledgment and return information from Kym Pruesse, Professor, Liberal Studies, OCAD at email@example.com, and drop off your submission in an envelope clearly marked with the lenders’ name and contact information to the LuminaTO box in the Faculty of Liberal Studies office, Room 315, 100 McCaul Street, Toronto. The office is open Monday Friday, 9 am to 5 pm. All artifacts will be returned!
Also, any volunteer help in managing the installation and take down would be welcome. Alumni and student involvement would be very helpful.
