Gerelt Mur Fundraiser

Tuesday, September 9, 2008 - 4:00am to Saturday, September 13, 2008 - 4:00am

XPACE is proud to host the Gerelt Mur Fundraiser. In Mongolia's urban centre, Ulan Bator, domestic abuse, alcoholism and financial desperation have driven many homeless children to living in the sewer systems. Gerelt Mur is an exceptional grassroots Mongolian charity supporting these children and their families. All funds raised from this art fundraiser will go directly to Gerelt Mur to help buy yurts, clothing, food and educational materials.

Clara in the Pines

Clara1
Friday, August 1, 2008 - 4:00am to Saturday, August 30, 2008 - 4:00am

Clara in the Pines is an installation of five life-size dummies that strongly resemble the artist within constructed domestic and forest settings. Benivolski’s work questions ideas of identity, displacement, family and community. This installation is inspired by The Sandman, a short story by E.T.A. Hoffmann, about a man who falls in love with an automaton. The tale climaxes with the terrifying revelation of the woman’s real identity, resulting in the man losing his mind.

Gathering: In The Hope To Exchange Views

Gatherings flyer

February 8 ' February 23, 2008
Tuesday to Saturday 12pm-6pm
Opening Reception Friday, February 8 2008, 7pm-11pm
In these contemporary times, it becomes extremely difficult to maintain a culture and its traditions. When you are a part of a culture that has been near extinction, it becomes hard to identify who you are and what the next step is in reclaiming your identity. Although not always in a conscious way, these factors affect our everyday lives. In one way or another we address these issues from time to time in our work as artists. The Aboriginal Students Association group members at OCAD, have gathered work to show this unique subconsciousness.
If we could do anything to reach a goal of reclamation and understanding, what better place to start than inviting people to an exhibition and to 'gather' some thoughts. This exhibition showcases works of contemporary aboriginal students in various media from painting to graphic design, from photography to video installation.
