Are We There Yet?

13 April 2011
Performance Bus

Going to the AGYU? All the way out there? Yeah, we’re out there. Far out there. Not only has our innovative Performance Bus provided artists with 45 minutes of uninterrupted quality time with their art community, but it has also offered captive audiences a free, fun-filled ride where distance is no longer an obstacle but an artistic strategy! And a marketing tool … driven by artists! Artist and prankster Jon Sasaki hosts this edition of The Performance Bus, which departs OCAD (100 McCaul St.) at 6 pm sharp on April 13th en route to Humberto Vélez’ exhibition opening, and asks, jokingly, “Are We There Yet?”

Working in the vein of “romantic conceptualism,” Toronto-based Jon Sasaki utilizes primarily performance-for-video, objects, installations, and interventions in work that mixes humour and pathos, often with gently antagonistic results. Recent solo exhibitions include 126 (Galway, Ireland), Centre Clark (Montreal), Access (Vancouver) and The Doris McCarthy Gallery (a touring exhibition and forthcoming catalogue). Jon was an active member of the Instant Coffee art collective between 2002 and 2007. He is represented by Jessica Bradley Art + Projects.
