Opening January 9th, 2009 from 7-10pm
LE Gallery and Simon Cole of Show & Tell Gallery are pleased to present “Word Up?” An exploration of the diverse methods and processes of production by a selection of some of the best artists whose primary practice is street based. “Word Up?” features world renown graffiti artists Ghost (NYC), Papermonster (NYC), Dixon (Spain), Omen (MTL), Scam (TO), and Case (TO). The show will prove to be a unique and colorful look in to an often marginalized discourse of contemporary art.
“Word Up?” Marks the first of many collaborations between LE Gallery and their new neighbour Show & Tell Gallery. Opening up in the former Dong Hai Restaurant (R.I.P) location Simon Cole brings vitality and ambition to the Dundas West Gallery scene. We are pleased to be working together and aim to increase the visibility of Toronto and International artists through our individual and partnered events.
