This performative exhibition features a collaboration with erstwhile Canadian artist Terence Koh and works by nine young shamans including Winnipeg artist Michael Dudeck and VoCA favorite, the Tokyo-based Item Idem:

With a portrait by Bruce LaBruce, original score by Andrew Zealley and AA Bronson’s self portraits from 1969.

Two collaborations with Terence Koh consist of a double toilet cubicle joined by a glory hole: one is a miniature, a three-dimensional model; the other is an architectural installation that invites the performative.

AA Bronson worked and lived as one of the three artists of General Idea from 1969 through 1994. Since then, he has worked under his own name, with multiple international exhibitions. He has been included in many biennales including Montreal, the Whitney, Venice, Sydney and Sao Paolo.
