Véronique Sunatori, Blame It On The Moon (2017)

Thursday, February 22, 2018
5-7PM
Art Metropole (1490 Dundas St W, Toronto, ON M6K 1T5)
Facebook event

“The recent call to witches and all things witchy is part of a feminist reclaiming of power both personally and politically, a choice that requires bravery and intention. We have entered the season of the witch, and as astrologist Chani Nichols recently wrote, we practice magic so we can move closer to the things and people we wish to join forces with. The group of women in #Craftof2018 are, both individually and collectively, forces to be reckoned with. They seem almost perfectly balanced in their strengths and talents, and have formed a community that has made space for magical manifestations.” — Ella Tetrault

Derived from peer-to-peer interviews and studio visits, Fertile Window is a publication that features the work of nine artists from the #Craftof2018 cohort. The artists in the project include Nedda Baba, Sonya Filman, Heather Frise, Zahra Khan, Chloë Lum, Sara Kay Maston, Tiffany Schofield, Véronique Sunatori, and Xuan Ye. Fertile Window is a 48-page art book, with an introductory essay by multimedia artist Ella Tetrault.

The publication retails for $20, and will be available for sale at Art Metropole from February 22, 2018.

Art Metropole is a partially accessible venue. The front entrance can be accessed by a 5-inch stopgap ramp and an outward-open door. The bathrooms are located down a flight of stairs.

Fertile Window is made possible through funding from the York University Graduate Students' Association and York University’s Department of Visual Art and Art History, School of the Arts, Media, Performance & Design.

Degree Streams offered by the Graduate Program in Visual Arts:

MFA in Visual Arts
The MFA program combines studio practice with art theory and criticism. Students develop their individual creative research and art production in conjunction with an evolving understanding of theoretical discourses and debates surrounding contemporary art and culture. Independent studio-based research is central to the program.

MFA / MBA
The combined MFA/MBA program, offered jointly with York's Schulich School of Business, leads to both a Master of Business Administration and Master of Fine Arts degree - an excellent foundation for management careers in the arts and cultural sector.

PhD in Visual Arts
The PhD program is premised on practice-based research that is materialized and disseminated in the form of art works. A professional program for rising artists who already have a significant body of work, it fosters advanced, independent research and writing integrated with the development of original studio practice, in all visual arts media.
