    Dancing in the Street: Le Continental XL at the FTA

    You know it’s summer in Montreal when festival season kicks in.

    Inflatable Deities at Visual Voice

    It’s a psychedelic dream. My gallery has been transformed into a giant 1970s album cover, complete with day-glow colours, black light, and a pile of vintage TV monitors. I allowed the Inflatable Deities (Jessica Mensch and Emily Pelstring) free reign, knowing that the best art happens when you allow artists to do their thing. Emily [...]

    Dancing with Sasha

    Following the advice of a friend I’m now going to post a “minute of the week” each Monday, rather than randomly posting a minute throughout the month. And this is my favourite minute of the week by a long shot! On Sunday I went to a fundraiser dance class at Sala Rosa with my friend [...]
