Excerpt from "On the Other Hand: Sinbad in the Rented World" by Phillip Monk:

 

"With the title, Sinbad in the Rented World, I pay homage to the legacy of the legendary underground filmmaker and performer Jack Smith, referring to one of his unfinished film projects. Not that I suspect Smith’s legacy to be fulfilled by the artists in the exhibition––or even his amazing achievements in film, experimental theatre, and installation necessarily to be known. What I want to explore is a queer aesthetic in Toronto art but as applied to social function. Is this a new phenomenon? Perhaps, if we are willing to stretch our understanding of the parameters of visual culture––or queer art."
