THE TORONTONIANS| DREAM BABY DREAM: INTERROGATED BY TEENS
Parkdale teens interview some of the most important young artists in the city and stream it live to the Internet. No question is too intrusive, no inquiry too personal and no query too prying. The lives of the young artists will be relentlessly interrogated by a bunch of 15-year-olds with absolutely no agenda.
THE TORONTONIANS are a Parkdale-based multidisciplinary collective of teens working in collaboration with Mammalian Diving Reflex. Mammalian Diving Reflex is a research-art atelier dedicated to investigating the social sphere, always on the lookout for contradictions to whip into aesthetically scintillating experiences, producing one-off events, theatre-based performance, videos, installation, theoretical texts and community happenings. Past work includes: Nuit Market, Eat the Street, Haircuts by Children, The Children’s Choice Awards, Slow Dance With Teacher, A Suicide-Site Guide to the City, Monster Makers, The Best Sex I’ve Ever Had and Old Women Shooting Guns.
MAMMALIAN DIVING REFLEX‘s work has been presented around the world in Birmingham, Bologna, Brisbane, Brussels, Calgary, Chicago, Cork, Derry, Edmonton, Enschede, Greensboro, Kitchener-Waterloo, Kuopio, Lahore, London, Los Angeles, Melbourne, Milan, Mumbai, Montreal, Newcastle, New York, Norwich, Nyon Prague, Oldenburg, Oslo, Ottawa, Perth, Portland, Regina, Sydney, Tasmania, Terni, Trondheim, Vancouver and Victoria.

The event will be featuring video works by various artists and curators.
