Art Criticism in a Truck! All Night! Nuit Blanche!

Art Criticism in a truck, people! This is what the Toronto Alliance of Art Critics is bringing you this Saturday (aka Nuit Blanche). It's all thanks to Leitmotif, an exhibition-in-trucks organized by curator Stuart Keeler and the Parkdale BIA. You'll be able to find the truck-o'-discourse in the parking lot of the Gladstone Cafe, 1181 Queen St W, ie. in the parking lot across the street from the Gladstone Hotel.

Here's the tentative critics schedule I've got - subject to change (+ indicates may be present intermittently):

7pm - 10 pm
Leah Sandals
John Bentley Mays
+ Otino Corsano
+ Murray Whyte

10pm - 1 am
Elena Potter
Katherine Dennis
+ David Jager

1 am - 4 am
Sky Gooden
Fran Schechter
+ Mary McDonald

4 am - 7 am
David Jager
Amish Morrell
+ Murray Whyte

I was on the 4-7am shift for the all-night project TAAC did last year, and I enjoyed the conversations had about art and criticism. I encourage anyone and everyone to drop by this Saturday for opinions and discussion on art and writing about art. Also feel free to bring artwork if you'd like us to discuss it in situ. Time limits may apply, but it would be great to meet folks face to face for whatever we can squeeze in. Questions or feedback about the way we practice (sometimes not so well in my personal case, see previous post) are also welcome.

For more information visit the Leitmotif Facebook page or the Leitmotif Nuit Blanche page and look for Leitmotif maps on the night of Nuit in Parkdale.
