The event creator says
many things conspired
to tell me the whole story.
Not only did they touch me,
or my hand touched them:
they were
so close
that they were a part
of my being,
--Pablo Neruda, “Ode to Things”

“The Thing About Objects” is an intense commitment to interdisciplinary investigations of the relationships between humans and the objects that populate our everyday existence. The third and final “The Thing About Objects” invites you to explore with us the *what* and *how* of our relationship to objects: from the seemingly banal to the emotionally profound. Through photography, performance art, drag, and storytelling, we will engage with objects as familial artefact, as domestic hoard, as personal identity.

Thursday 26 November 2015, in the upstairs venue at the High Park Club, we give objects centre stage.

* Doors open at 7:30 pm
* Performances begin promptly at 8:00pm
* $10 at the door
* Cash bar – NOTE: you actually need cash objects to procure liquid objects from the bar. There is no ATM object onsite.

With artists Laurence Butet-Roch, Shannon Cochrane, Drag King Flare, Francesco Gagliardi, Katie Hood, and Marta Iwanek.

Note: the High Park Club (an awesome TO heritage building -- with lots of parking) is at 100 Indian Road, south of High Park Blvd, tucked cozily between houses on a residential street. Walkable for Westenders.
