> DESCRIPTION

THIS IS PARADISE will present a selection of groundbreaking visual art, fashion, performance, music and theatre created by artists whose playground, sometime-home, laboratory, stage, gallery and canvas was the infamous Cameron Public House of the Queen Street West art scene of 1980’s Toronto. Audacious paintings and objects, mind-warping video, music and theatre come back to Queen Street West to play. The exhibition will recreate a moment in time, and reflect the stories behind the pictures and music from an historic decade marked by triumph and tragedy.
