Lunch Money

Lisa Baldissera: Snow
Lisa Baldissera: Snow

Lisa Baldissera. Snow 1997. VHS video (still).
31 Mar 1999 – 2 May 1999

To demonstrate how artmaking counteracts the effects of privation, the Toronto-based curators Kim Fullerton and Cheryl Sourkes made an exhibition of works by young artists from Vancouver, Saskatoon, Toronto, Montreal, and Halifax. They write:

Lunch Money is a metaphor for conjuring something pleasurable out of conditions of the bare minimum. You only have enough money for lunch buy you donít spend it on lunch. The art in Lunch Money provides ... an escape from austerity, depression, lack of money or opportunity. It is what you see on the wallpaper when dreaming with your eyes open...

Lunch Money is not about the body. If you stayed with the body, you would have lunch. It is about giving the hunger of the soul precedence.


Lunch MoneyExhibition Catalogue
A 22-page illustrated catalogue, with an introduction by Kim Fullerton and Cheryl Sourkes, accompanied the exhibition.
