Take Home The Unknown
Wednesday, December 10, 2014
The Gladstone Hotel 1214 Queen St W.
What catches your eye when you don’t know what you’re looking for? Take Home the Unknown features artwork by 100 artists, musicians, chefs, writers, actors, and local luminaries, all priced at only $100*. The catch? All of the works are anonymous.
Hosted by eTalk’s Zain Meghji, guests have 2 hours to buy any of the artworks displayed–come early for the best selection! Hints will be given; incentives will be dangled. When the clock runs out, artists will be revealed, and purchasers will get to see whose work they’ll be taking home.
Proceeds will support SAVAC, the only non-profit, artist-run centre in Canada dedicated to supporting South Asian artists. For over 20 years, SAVAC has increased the visibility of culturally diverse artists by curating and exhibiting their work, providing mentorship, and facilitating professional development. Your purchase will help support SAVAC in continuing to play a vital role in Canada’s visual arts ecology by expanding the frameworks that support culturally diverse perspectives.
Featuring beats by DJs Leila P and Alikulapo, and special gifts by Rohinton Mistry, VAG HALEN, and more! Short eats by The Gladstone. Cash bar. Find the event on Facebook.
