In this exhibition, FCG members were asked to submit a work of art they have created that they would be reluctant to sell. Most artists have created at least one piece, which holds a close attachment for emotional, anecdotal or personal reasons, making it hard to part with no matter the price. In Not For Sale, FCG’s members are exhibiting these works, sharing them with our community. The exhibition celebrates the membership of FCG, one of Canada’s oldest Artist-run Centres.

Launch Event for Issue #23 of .dpi
March 8 (International Women's Day), 7:00pm
4001 Rue Berri, Suite 201
Pages from my limited edition silkscreened book What Makes an Object Queer? will be projected at the launch event for issue #23 of the online magazine .dpi.
Central to trans, queer, and feminist self determination, perceptions of gender and sexuality are as varied as the bodies expressing them. From documentary portraiture, through physically demanding performance art, to abstract sculpture and digital creations, a vast array of artistic forms are employed by trans, queer, and feminist artists when representing themselves and their communities. Formal and theoretically, multiplicity itself figures centrally, as cultural practices surrounding issues of gender and sexuality are brought together to form exhibitions, publications, and histories. This issue of .dpi seeks to explore and celebrate the ways in which artists contribute to the proliferation of multiple genders, sexualities, and feminisms and understandings thereof through their work.
Guest Editor-in-Chief for this issue, Johnny Nawracaj, is a Polish-born writer and video/installation/performance artist. In their academic and artistic pursuits they explore love, loss, and longing with a particular investment in these themes as a part of radical queer and trans cultural production. Their performance works have seen the cabaret stages, theatre vitrines, and gallery floors of venues such as Café Cléopatre, Théâtre Ste. Catherine, and Toronto's Xpace.
