Radar: The Sex Show, Director's Talk by Guy Maddin, 12th Planet w/The Killabits & Zed's Dead, Wednesdays Go POP!, A World Of Shorts: Cult Of Celebrity
ART | The Sex Show
Phil Anderson has assembled a group show at Gallery 1313 of over 20 artists in many different mediums, from sculpture to video. This is an annual exhibition, and Anderson has stated in interviews that it isn't a "family" event, but even more interestingly, one of the aims of the show is to draw attention to how different everyone's perceptions are regarding sex. Anderson has also underscored how individual people's tastes and appetites are, and he has chosen the different works in this exhibition to demonstrate and celebrate this great spectrum of sexuality.
Gallery 1313 (1313 Queen Street West), 7PM FREE
LECTURE | Director's Talk by Guy Maddin
A rare opportunity to enjoy a lecture from a Canadian film icon! Born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Guy Maddin has become one of the country's most acclaimed directors and screenwriters. Known for his distinctive aesthetic and recreation of the vibe and look of silent films, his style is often compared to David Lynch's for his combination of both the surreal and classic.
