Raising Her Spirit in a Promised Land | 1st Flr – Ballroom
Alexandra Mackenzie | 1st Flr - Ballroom
Raising her spirit in a promise land, multi-media artist Alexandra Mackenzie (Petra Glynt) makes installations, drawings, murals, paintings, psychedelic digital gifs, and audio collages. Now Magazine described her work as "fantasy pages from the greatest 70s sci-fi colouring book that never was.” Mackenzie’s music/art expresses her concerns about issues involving the environment, our ever-changing climate, indigenous rights, identity and appropriation.
Either you have seen Mackenzie’s work on the brick walls of OCAD University (http://vimeo.com/109037058), Drake Hotel lobby, promotional materials for Autoshare or featured as part of the New York exhibit in support of Sisters in Spirit, along side Grimes and other female Canadian icons. Mackenzie’s musical project Petra Glynt has become a household name internationally, having recently toured with bands such as Austra and hosted events at the legendary Music Gallery. We are so excited to have Alexandra Mackenzie Host the Gladstone’s Love Design Party this year. Get lost is the fantasy land of Mackenzie’s mind and get ready to dance. Expect nothing but amazing curated music and never-seen before gifs.
