Invisible Galleries

We talk to two captivating artists this week. They both utilize public space for art. Chicago artist, teacher and curator Jesse Malmed shares his community-based approach to showing art. If you were ever in Toronto's  Kensington Market, Queen West or Parkdale neighbourhoods in the 1980s and 1990s you might have seen art bolted to fences, walls or telephone poles by Rocky Zenyk. 


We know you are going to love these guests. Please email us your thoughts, ideas and dreams to:
