Hot Takes: Cameron Lee & Justin Gray

Thursday, March 18, 4 pm
Zoom

Using close looking skills and visual vernacular, Hot Takes is an analysis of popular images in the media where we invite creatives, artists and thinkers to discuss one image and decipher and better understand our current cultural and social moment. This week join special guests Cameron Lee and Justin Gray for a conversation about some compelling contemporary images of their choosing.

Cameron Lee is a Toronto-based artist who DJs, builds installations, collects ephemera combining these with humour, making familiarity feel strange. Cameron’s work has been shown at the AGO, the Power Plant, Mercer Union, Art Metropole, and Erin Stump Projects.

Justin Gray, AKA Fisher Price, is a drag performer and writer in Toronto. Before it’s closure Justin operated the longest running drag party in the iconic west-end queer bar, The Beaver and has written for many online publications including ‘Yohomo’ and ‘Loverboy’. Recently he created and wrote the award winning series ‘Queens’ a stylish campy drag whodunnit that premiered on CBC Gem. Aside from writing and twirling on stages, Justin is a self taught costume maker for both performance and TV. Including work on such shows as ‘Big Brother Canada’ and Vice’s acclaimed true crime series ‘Dark Side of the Ring’. Justin wears many hats in the entertainment world so stay tuned for more exciting projects in the future.
