A Surrealist Inspired Costume Party – The First Ever!

04/11/2013
A Surrealist inspired costume party and art exhibit – the first of its kind – is being held on Saturday, November 16 at 8pm at the Corkin Gallery, Distillery District. The event showcases a private collection of Surrealist photography featuring works by Andres Kertesz. Artists in attendance include Francoise Sullivan, David Urban, Barbara Astman and Ramon Serrano and Benjamin Kamino will perform a contemporary dance.
 
Drs. Ben Neel, Tak Mak, Marcus Butler and Pam Ohasi will enlighten guests with their ground breaking work which is only being done at The Princess Margaret. Proceeds benefit the Immune Therapy Research program at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.
 
Guests in costume will walk along the cobblestones of the Distillery and be greeted by a flame blower who will excite your senses beckoning you to enter the Corkin Gallery. Honourary Chair, Emmanuelle Gattuso Slaight and hosts Katherine Newman, Peter Cebulak and Jane Corkin will ensure guests enjoy a night to remember. Slight of hand? Read your mind? Surrealist expression awaits you!
 
“One of the most impressive people I had the opportunity to interview in my years of broadcasting was Dr. Tak Mak” says Valerie Pringle CM, who has endorsed this groundbreaking event. She continues, “Katherine Newman has set the ambitious goal to raise $1.5 million to create an Immune Therapy Centre at The Princess Margaret which is a world leader in this field”
 
The message associated with the event is that creative expression takes on many forms, the result of which improves the human condition. Unlike any other fundraiser to date in Toronto this event connects the arts with science and allows the guests to experience various art forms ranging from contemporary dance, to photography, the culinary arts, music and sculpture.
