art is (bleep...) (2013)

Art is (bleep) was an intervention staged at The Third Space exhibition at York Quay Gallery in Toronto. Our intention was to bring attention to the censoring of three pages from the installation The Book of Illuminations at the insistence of the curator. The intervention was staged twice, at the opening of the exhibit and later during the curator's tour where we entered into a discussion with the audience about censorship.

Performers included Sarah Abu-Sharar, the late Naomi Binder Wall, Roberta Buiani and Gita Hashemi. The audience were invited to take photos with us wearing the censored work on t-shirts.
