Baby Centaur's First Reading - Montreal

Better than my first karaoke...

Joyland saw a packed house at the Green Room, Montreal this past Monday (Sept 21/09) for the start of their tour of three North American cities. I had the pleasure of being part of the lineup with some of Toronto and Montreal's finest, including our gracious host David McGimpsey. I read a new short, Modern Babies, to a wonderfully attentive crowd.

Read more about it here, including how a poor fella fell through a trap door while serving Brian some water. I turned around just in time to see his hands disappear underneath the floor.

Next stop (though this girl is almost back in Toronto, now) is tonight at KGB, NYC.

New Mondo: Steve Laurie

New Mondo, New Machinery, New Projects by Steve Laurie.

“A friend of mine and I were sitting on the sidewalk one day,” artist Steven Laurie explains, “and wondering out loud what it would take for people who didn’t typically talk about art to be compelled to come into a gallery or be interested in a contemporary art show.”

The possibilities often seem stunted by the fairly insular environments that many art communities tend to foster. This is equally perpetuated by design or lack of funds, and a conundrum that many artists choose, understandably, not to address when creating work, especially when it pertains to those exhibiting in galleries. Typically one would choose to have art appear in spaces that specifically appeal to those of the local “known” and “cultured” audience (who are assumed to want to attend a show), versus those who never typically show interest, but might if they felt compelled (those we assume may never attend).
