Project 165
165 Augusta Ave, Kensington Market, Toronto, Canada

Project 165 is psyched to announce Methinks Presents' NYC Retro Show, a mAshUp multiMeDia s___c_ __r_A_p*book-themed show featuring photos, sound art, video, installation, postcard art, sketches, journal entries, artifacts, handmade halloween masks and other creative contributions by participants of the most recent NYC Roadtrip.

NYC Roadtrip is not your typical travel experience. Artist-run, community-focused and tailored for the artist's budget - and informed by relational aesthetics, psychogeography and DIY culture - it is it is an opportunity for creative adventure-seekers (of all ages and experiences) to network, get inspired, workshop special projects, conduct field research and explore everyday urban life beyond its usual context; to explore the non-tourist side of New York City through organized chaos and chance happenings; to plug into a vibrant community of fun-lovin', culture-hungry travelers; and, overall, to break from routine and gain invaluable, lasting life-insight.

After each NYC Roadtrip, passengers and crew alike reunite to participate in NYC Retro Show, a multimedia exploration of individual and group perspectives on various New York City-informed subjects, such as the mapping of moments; travel as risk-taking; the artist as wanderer; "street art, street life"; the city as playground; and collective urban myth-making.

NYC Retro Show features the creative efforts of Adrian Forrow, Andrzej Tarasiuk, Anya Wassenberg, Amanda Nunes, Brian Rideout, Catherine Nomura, Chico Gupta, David Figueroa, Dave Pijuan-Nomura, Deena Jacobs, Jacqueline Lane, James Spencer, Janet Attard, Jeanetta Dunn, Jesse Albert, Jenny Santos, Jonna Pederson, Karol Orzechowski, Lisa Pijuan-Nomura, Mark Cabuena, Meika Palmer, Mike Vigneux, Rick Kresta, Robb Mirsky, Ryan Ringer, Shannon Gibson, Tariq Mohamedali + others.
