Merged: A Hybrid Show


I just wanted to 'advertize' this art show called Merged: A Hybrid Show, which is about to start in Toronto this week - opening night is Thursday 20th from 7pm, I think. It's at the Felix Norman Gallery on Queen West.

I really enjoy the work of one of the artists, Tony Taylor, who'll have his work on display. To quote from Tony Taylor's website ...

"This collection of work is a reflection on world economic forums and G summit series and how they undermine democracy and often lead to violently disrupting the civilians and cities in which they are hosted. These well-publicized events highlight an opportunity for world leaders and corporations to bump elbows, share anecdotes and discuss economic philosophy, disregarding any opportunity for public participation or representation.  For me these events resemble a gathering of the animal powerhouse’s from the financial and political jungles where only the wealthy survive..."
Just one of his paintings ...
