RECOMMENDED VIEWING: STRANGER THAN PARADISE

Written and directed by Jim Jarmusch, Stranger Than Paradise documents the relationships of a self-identified ‘hipster’ living in New York in the 1980’s.

Not only is the film highly entertaining and helped shape American independent cinema, it is also an extremely interesting time-capsule of fashion. Fiercely independent, Jim Jarmusch did not hire a costume designer, instead styling the characters himself.

MOCCA’S FINAL EXHIBITION ON QUEEN ST. WEST

Q.W.Y.C.-simpler-dark-snail-copy

After spending several years as our not-so-distant neighbour, the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art will be hosting its last exhibition on Queen West.

If you spend any amount of time on Queen West you’ll have seen MOCCA’s large-scale public murals and installations. Or, perhaps you’ve noticed their parking lot overrun with lights and people enjoying one of their many parties.

If you haven’t had a chance to see MOCCA’s amazing space on Queen St. West, you still have one more chance. On June 25, MOCCA will be hosting their last exhibition on Queen St. West and launching the QWYC (Queen West Yacht Club — a fictitious social venue institute at the MOCCA by artist Dean Baldwin.
