GHOST HOLE IV: Saturday Oct. 29th

Ex-White-House-board member Vanessa Rieger is curating Ghost Hole again and this year it is on Toronto Island! Showcasing over 30+ artists, some of them being White House members, and other local talents, transforming the Artscape Gibraltar Point Public school for one night only!!!

For this one-day only event, the school will come to life, or rather, rise back from the dead. Artists will act as necromancers and use their power of art, installation, sound, video and performance to activate the space and open gateways into strange new worlds! Some things you may encounter on your visit to Ghost Hole IV: Sculptures made by poltergeists, a haunted outhouse, bodies on the beach, boobie traps in the woods, ghostly children under the floorboards, altered states of reality, floating apparitions and historical building tours led by ghostly faculty.

Family friendly between 2pm – 6pm,
but once the sun goes down things get a lot darker!
Performances by Maylee Todd (Maloo), JAL, Processor, Barbara, Sunken Skulls, Dune Buddies and comedy by Nick Flanagan.

Tickets on sale now @ soundscapes! 12$

BEES!

This Nuit Blanche the White House Studios will be buzzing Friday and Saturday.

Symbol. Metaphor. Muse. Nuisance. Killer…
Buzzy, fuzzy, gatherer of pollen…
Fashioner of beeswax and honey…
Lynchpin of agrarian culture…
Hive-minded matriarchal exemplar…
Shrill shill of sugary breakfast cereals…

A great ally, a great danger – of all the insects is there another that occupies as large a place in our myths, imagination, and all too brutal realities. BEES have hypnotized, traumatized, terrorized, and tantalized children of all ages throughout the ages. These children grow up to be artists such as yourself. Now is the time for artists to plumb the depths of the sub-conscious and explore the deep-seeded fears, desires, and questions these haplo-diploid creatures so haplo-diplomatically evoke.
