AUGUST 8th Bike tour 2021
SUNDAY AUGUST 8th, 6:30pm
TICKETS SOLD OUT
We’re back with a bike tour! We haven’t all ridden together since 2018, as we took 2019 off to curate our Nuit Blanche exhibition, and then last year the pandemic forced us to postpone our programming. We are thrilled to bring these projects, now long in the works, to our audience and to see all of your glowing faces again. As part of the usual thrill and mystery of the Art Spin tour experience, specific details about the programming and locations will be kept secret until the day of the tour, but we can reveal that we have four newly commissioned projects to share with you. We’ll be premiering an exciting film by adelheid, a dance piece choreographed by Amanda Acorn with live sound by Matt Smith, a duet with a giant light cube by Pulga Muchochoma, and a humorous and potentially heartbreaking performance by Jon Sasaki. The tour will be led by trumpeter and Art Spin veteran emcee Michael Louis Johnson, along the course of the tour we’ll have musical accompaniment from DJ General Eclectic and his Boom Bike.
For the safety and enjoyment of our audience, Art Spin is a fair weather event. Our official rain date for the August 8th tour is Sunday August 15th. Ticket Holders will be notified day-of in case of any rescheduling due to weather. If you are unable to attend the rain date, we can refund your ticket if necessary, or give up your spot to someone else and keep your ticket proceeds to go to a good cause.
Thank you to all of our volunteers, partners, collaborators and supporters who make Art Spin possible. Art Spin is presented with funding from the Canada Council for the Arts, the Ontario Arts Council and the Toronto Arts Council. Thanks to CycleTo for a call out to their volunteer bike marshalls to help us keep our group safe.
