A Face a Name book launch at the Baitshop
Friday evening witnessed the launch of a limited edition print-run of Well & Good's latest e-book, A Face a Name. Hosted at the Baitshop, the event also served as the occasion for an art show featuring the work of Adrian Forrow, Cindy Blažević, Gene Pendon, Mediah, Pascal Paquette, and We Kill You (to name only a few). The book, which is $5.99 to download and $48 for the print collector's edition, features a lengthy series of profiles of Toronto and Montreal-based artists and cultural producers in their own words (for a list of those featured, check here).
Although the focus is firmly on what's conventionally referred to as street art, according to one of the artists featured, Roadsworth, there's a "diversity of practices that are presented. It's a reflection not only of the cultural circle of influence that surrounds Well and Good but also of a generation of urban artists whose work transcends the often fashionable labels of 'graffiti art' and 'street art.'"
