Royal Red — pretty much the best gallery ever — was founded by Troy Gronsdahl in 2004 and officially christened on November 4th, 2005. It was a unique little spot nestled in and amongst the city’s commercial galleries, Artist Run Centres and lovely, well funded Public institutions. No artist fees were ever paid but the parties were really fun. The gallery shared space with Phonographique, a boutique record shop, which closed in 2007.

SPASM II PUBLIC ART FESTIVAL
w/ Andrew Forster and Michael Fernandes
Reading is a 2-person collaborative performance based on the reading of a text. One person sits on top of a stack of chairs and reads to the audience. The other person is part-actor and part-listener; his series of actions and gestures animate but do not illustrate the text. The piece proposes a deliberate, almost slapstick divisions between reader/listener and voice/work of art/audience.
