XPACE presents Ulysses Castellanosâ€™ â€œCult of The Contemporaryâ€ a Live Art Auction! The event will blend together the fundraising event and a cult gathering, all under Castellanosâ€™ art direction. The event will feature never before seen audio and video works by the artist.
Attendees will become part of Castellanosâ€™ fully immersive environment, featuring many interactive activities such as free face painting provided by Fishead. And, of course, there will be Spiked Space Kool Aid punch!
This event is a fundraiser intended to raise funds to help pay student and young artist project fees for upcoming exhibitions. This auction will showcase artists who have exhibited with XPACE since our founding by the OCAD Student Union in 2004. Seven years later, the artists who have come through our doors have helped form the foundation for Torontoâ€™s artistic communities. â€œCult of The Contemporaryâ€ is your chance to purchase the work of some of Torontoâ€™s HOTTEST Up and Coming contemporary artists!
