Opening reception: Friday, September 8, 6-8pm

Migration can seem like a single, bold act – but the process is actually a series of steps that includes correspondences, forms and often a whole lot of waiting – these individual tasks can be their own bureaucracies, each shrouded in mystery and inconsistency, despite the millions of people throughout the world who navigate them.

Hurry Up and Wait encounters the tensions between policy and humanity – the range of emotions, wonder, assumptions and discoveries that make migration much more than simply a political issue.

401 Richmond Street West and the Centre for Emerging Artists & Designers are excited to announce the 401 Built for Art Nuit Blanche Career Launcher providing exhibition opportunity inside 401’s historic building to one public art project (installation, performance, etc.) during Nuit Blanche Toronto 2018 on September 29 2018 from 7pm to 7am. 
Inspired by the entrepreneurial television series’ Shark Tank and Dragons’ Den, Dragon Tank aims to reproduce the absurd products pitched within them. With humour in mind, the artworks will function as vestiges of the most needed and most useless consumer products. In a time when ridiculous and nonsensical has become the norm, we are critical of the enigmatic ‘North American Dream’ capitalism offers to consumers and entrepreneurs alike. And question who this ‘dream’ is really for, in the context of race, gender, sexuality, and class.
