nuit blanche

The Sleep of Reason Produces Monsters
Those who venture into Zone A will encounter a world turned upside-down,
where the only certainty is to expect the unexpected. Nothing is as it seems.

The works examine an urban civilization of alienation, fear and potential danger,
mass communication and (dis)orientation. This tension is balanced by the alien
and the fantastic, where humour is staged in strange situations and suspensions.

Zone A promises to transfix and unsettle the psyche of the individual and the masses.
Enter at your own risk. Go on, I dare you.

Rhonda Corvese, Curator.
Rhonda Corvese is a Toronto-based independent curator whose projects often evolve
in response to situations where she strives to challenge the role of the curator,
artist and audience in the presentation and engagement of contemporary art.
