Join us at the backyard of the soon-to-end Gendai Workstation on July 12th for A Moveable Feast before Gendai evolves into a mobile organization later this summer. For this site-specific fundraiser we invite you to engage in playful modes of 'investment' in Gendai alongside the workers, artists, designers, architects, performers and writers who have embarked on this new trajectory with us. Come and be our guests as we serve sensibilities and speculations towards Gendai's future through food, performances and good company!

Gendai was founded as a not-for-profit art space in 2000 to promote excellence in contemporary art and design with an emphasis on work made by Canadian and international artists of Japanese ancestry and the broader East Asian community. In 2009 the mandate of Gendai was shifted to cultivate dialogue through contemporary art, focusing on experimental collaborations with contemporary artists and organizations for the production and dissemination of artwork from East Asian perspectives. → http://www.gendaigallery.org
Gendai Workstation (Aug 2011 – Aug 2012) is a shifting site of collaboration which harnesses installation, improvisation and curation as tools for spatial transformation. Artists, architects, builders, magicians, chefs and gardeners contribute to the ongoing evolution of the Workstation, inviting the public to join in the playful interrogation of traditional artistic and architectural practices. → http://www.gendaigallery.org/workstation/blog/
