Life of a Craphead is the performance art group of Amy Lam and Jon McCurley since 2006. Life of a Craphead presented the Life of a Craphead Fifty Year Retrospective, 2006-2056, an exhibition of all the work they will ever make, at the Art Gallery of Ontario in 2013. They curate and host Doored, a monthly performance art show, and will premiere their feature-length film Bugs in January 2015 at the Western Front, Vancouver.

We will also be holding a panel discussion on Thursday June 10, from 7-9pm, to celebrate and discuss Xpace’s 10 year history. More information here

Xpace Cultural Centre is a membership driven artist-run centre supported by the OCAD Student Union and dedicated to providing emerging and student artists with the opportunity to showcase their work in a professional setting. We program contemporary practices that respond to the interests and needs of our membership. As we program with shorter timelines this allows us to respond to contemporary issues in theory and aesthetics, keeping an up to the minute response to what is going on directly in our community.
