Central & Remote: March 16th – 18th

A round up of the best/weirdest things to do this weekend in Toronto…

Friday March 16th

Japanese artist Junko Mizuno’s work mixes childlike sweetness with blood and gore. Her work has been called Gothic Kawaii, and can be found on t-shirts, postcards and other collectibles, as well as in comics such as her most notable work “Pure Trance.”

Mizuno’s latest solo show, Venus Cake: Junko Mizuno’s Food Obsession, will be at Toronto’s own Magic Pony/Narwhal Gallery. The show will take you on a personal and psychedelic journey through food fetishes. Along with paintings on canvas and paper, Mizuno has also created 3D pieces for her second Canadian showing. For the after party the Underground Peepshow is hosting a night of fandom burlesque inspired by the gallery show at the Bovine Sex Club.

Opening reception 7-10PM Friday, March 16th. The show runs until the 20th at 680 Queen St. W. After party starts at 10PM sharp at the Bovine (542 Queen St W)

About Yuli Scheidt

Yuli was born at the exact moment in 1986 when the Challenger Space Shuttle exploded and rained down on the ocean. As a child she believed this meant she was destined for greatness in the realm of space travel and radioastronomy. Nothing remotely as awesome as that has happened so far. Instead Yuli, at the age of 18, relocated from Calgary to Ottawa where she studied photography, life sciences and graphic design before moving to Toronto. [More by Yuli]
