Just got back from a great trip to see old friends in Montreal and launch Hermoddities by Temple Bates at the Drawn and Quarterly bookstore. We screened Peeker, her NFB animation, and she gave her artist talk for the first time and really nailed it. Lederhosen Lucil was awesome warming up the crowd with her freestylin. Temple’s new show of paintings is being launched in Toronto tonight. Everyone (well everyone in Toronto) go to her show at Katharine Mulherin Contemporary Art Projects, 1086 Queen Street West, from July 8 – 31. Fantastic new paintings.
