Toronto, CANADA... In cooperation with XPACE Cultural Centre, is pleased to announce the latest installment of Fado's annual Emerging Artists Series. Join us from March 13-15, 2008 as local performers and artists bring their collaborative projects (both live performance, documentation and combinations of the two) to XPACE.

Curator Erika DeFreitas' Curatorial premise:

This curatorial premise of this project required an emerging and an established performance artist to collaborate jointly, and in turn with participants within the space in which they work/present. I am interested in the relational aspects within the collaborative process between artists, and how it specifically pertains to questions of authorship, communication, tension, and pedagogy. I am certain that these collaborations will challenge the concept of relational aesthetics as it is outlined by Nicolas Bourriaud in his text Relational Aesthetics.
