Book Launch: Peter Dubé's Beginning with the Mirror
Join us for the launch of Peter Dubé's Beginning with the Mirror! The evening will be hosted by Chrisopher DiRaddo. Books will be available for buying and signing, along with refreshments. Free and open to all.
About the book:
Jean Genet stated: "Anyone who knows a strange fact shares in its singularity." A few strange facts within this book, the latest collection by Shirley Jackson award finalist, Peter Dubé, are: the heat within a boy or a man can be muscular, be with purpose, be all consuming; mobs become consuming entities, shifting and hungry and with no humane intention despite being once composed of humanity; poets and actresses and students are words and words have power and resonance and walk on two legs and sometimes soar but more often haunt; and we can never forget that memories batter and wound, their shape defined like a blade or reflective like a silver-backed mirror. Dubé's short stories are eerie and fantastical and chip away at the known world until there are wide cracks that reveal many a strange fact to all of us at once.

The Idea of the Avant Garde - And What It Means Today: Book Launch, Presentation, Q&A
The Idea of the Avant Garde, edited by Montreal author and cultural theorist Marc James Léger, brings together 50 intellectuals and artists from different generations of practice - 60s and 70s neo-avant-gardes, 80s and 90s postmodernists and 2000s activists - to reflect on the significance of the avant garde idea in a world of creative industries, precarious labour and neoliberal austerity. The book is conceived as a bridge between contemporary activist art and the various forms of critical autonomy that are part of the legacies of radical art. Tracing diverse genealogies and trajectories, the book offers a forum of ideas that covers different arts fields, from visual art, art activism, photography, film and architecture, to literature, theatre, performance, intermedia and music.
A 30 minute presentation by Marc James Léger will be followed by a Q&A. The launch event is free and open to the public.
