The Anonymous Art Awards, 2005


The Anonymous Art Awards, 2005
presented by

Miklos Legrady
and
Those Who Remain Anonymous

The anonymous art awards 2005 will celebrate and honor those artists
who have shown excellence this year but wish to remain anonymous.

The Toronto art community, while an endearing crowd, like all groups
will enforce their specific type of social conformity.
Some artists on the other hand are shy, socially inept, or badly confused.

Anonymous art could be more interesting than art history; it's a
known fact . This is an opportunity to let your imagination soar to
what those anonymous works would be if we knew about them.

Work will be awarded in all categories. Unfortunately, since the
work could lead to indentifying the artists, no work may be entered
in the competition, nor therefore shown to the public.

As the winners will wish to remain anonymous, there'll be no need for
prizes, no walking up to the podium under the glare of spotlights.
In fact, since the winners won't show up at all, there's no point in
expensive award presentations, which have been very successfully
cancelled.

Thank you all for participating.

DISCUSSION

Garage sale becomes Toronto's "Armory" show


At the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art;

Istvan Kantor's benefit sale at MOCCA seems to be turning into a major event,
an important appraisal of Queen West art, circa 2005.

Kantor received the Governor General Award because he's a catalyst
who makes things happen; it's as though Queen street was waiting for
someone to bring artists together in a local Documenta... and they
came with their work.

The show changes daily as pieces are sold and new works go up on the wall;
a creative dynamic is taking hold, "buzz" of a vital social-cultural event.

As a local piece of art history, the show is being documented and
daily updated at this url;
http://www.ccca.ca/mikidot/istvansite/art_sale/

A group show "of the best and the worst" it's taking on elements of a
Fellini movie as the square in front of MOCCA turns into performance
space... while the walls inside present every concept of styles and
ideas.

Worth attention are prices. Large paintings of the $10,000 + range
are priced at $400.
As a solidarity benefit for Istvan Kantor, everyone including major
collectible names
such as Napoleon Brousseau have priced their work mostly in the low $100,
with many artists contributing at least a few good pieces priced at $50.

Miklos Legrady's performance, slashing of a valuable portrait
painting with a box cutter,
will take place at the anti-reception: 6 o'clock thursday sept 1.
