ABOUT THE PROJECT:
We Made a Deal with the Devil is our next traveling art show.
It will tour across Central and Eastern Canada for the month of August, with scheduled stops in Peterborough, Kingston, Ottawa, Cornwall, Merrickville, Wakefield, Montreal, Victoriaville, Quebec City, Fredericton, Moncton, Sackville, Pugwash and Halifax, then back to Toronto for a final exhibition.
Inspired by �La Chasse-galerie�, a cautionary French Canadian tale of a group of 19th-century loggers who make a pact with the devil, this show will combine performance art, live sound, drawings and other creative projects, by national and international artists of all stripes, for a fun exploration of folklore, collective memory, mythmaking, adventure and risk.
We Made a Deal with the Devil is part of Collective Action Expedition 09: a DIY community outreach initiative that will allow a crew of six Methinks Presents collaborators to document, engage and learn from people, projects and creative communities involved in independent and artist-run culture in Canada; expose new creative work to disparate Canadian audiences; explore cultural exchange opportunities; and develop personal creative projects along the way.
Collective Action Expedition 09 will result in a multimedia document and artist discussion - in conjunction with the final installment of We Made a Deal with the Devil - back in Toronto, at our new art space, Project 165.
