Since 2009, the Latvian comics magazine ku! has invited international comic artists to draw their interpretations of the last match on paper snips the size of matchbooks. At this size, these little artworks are easily collected in just a few tiny boxes BUT when exhibited together as The Last Match, the collected drawings are taken out and hung on matchsticks, showing that together you can make something big out of something small.
The Last Match is made up of contributions from more than 380 artists, from over 52 countries. This international exhibition has traveled from Riga to Lisbon, Linz, Lucerne, Leipzig, Erlangen, Haarlem, Tbilisi, Prague, Poznan, St. Petersburg, Bologna, Graz, and Ljubljana, and its making its Toronto/Ontario/Canadian/North American debut with TCAF! Were so excited!
Co-presented by Videofag in Kensington Market, The Last Match will be up from May 7th-12th. There will be an opening reception on May 8th, from 7:00-9:00pm, which we highly recommend attending. With so many pieces, youll want to spend time with it all!
The exhibition is being brought to TCAF thanks to the ku! editors David Schilter and Sanita Muiniece, and will be accompanied by a matching wall painting by Patrick Kyle. For more information on The Last Match, as well as photos of it from previous showings, please visit the ku website.
