Nathaniel Russell Artist Showcase in partnership with Art Metropole

Nathaniel Russell was born and raised in Indiana. After college, Russell spent several years in the San Francisco Bay Area making posters, record covers, and woodcuts. He returned to his home city of Indianapolis and now spends his time creating drawings, fake fliers, bad sculptures, wood shapes, and music. Russell’s work is regularly shown around the world in both traditional galleries and informal spaces, usually surrounded by an expanding list of friends, collaborators, and like-minded folk.

Art Metropole is a not-for-profit organisation with a focus on the production, dissemination and contextualisation of artist-initiated publication in any media, especially those formats and practices predisposed to sharing and circulation.

NUIT ROSE: Analog Pride Pavilion

This performance piece by Evan Tapper and Scott Sorli is apart of Nuit Rose 2016 at Artscape Youngplace. Inside the installation participants experience an intimate social space, unmediated by mobile technology. APP hosts will be available to assist participants in the art of conversation. This piece will take place both during the Nuit Rose Launch Party on June 22 at Artscape Youngplace, and the official Nuit Rose event on Saturday June 25th from 7pm until late.

SUMMER OPENING RECEPTION: Thursday, June 23, 2016 | 6 – 9 PM


Continuing an exploration of urban history initiated during its Off-Site series, the Koffler Gallery invites audiences to venture outside the white cube with a summer project developed by the PED Collective. Including Canadian artists Millie Chen and Warren Quigley and Americans Andrew Johnson, Joan Linder and Paul Vanouse, PED describes itself as “a full service organization slated to inform, entertain and educate” through a range of site-specific, audio bicycle tours designed to reveal layers of a city’s life. PED.Toronto also includes honorary member David Dressner.

PED re-imagines and transforms our experiences of familiar streetscapes, engaging a spectrum of professional and amateur narrators to populate audio tracks delivered via bicycle-mounted speakers. PED’s past projects mined the geographies and civic narratives of Buffalo, NY (USA), Belfast (Ireland), Chongqing (China), Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) and St. John’s, Newfoundland.

For PED.Toronto, the collective has created a series of bike tours through Toronto’s West Queen West area that examine the city’s shifting identities, multi-faceted realities and imagined potentials. For more information, please go to http://kofflerarts.org/exhibitions/2016/03/16/ped-toronto/
