A little over a year ago Peter Mohideen started to create The Escapist Manifesto. In the beginning it was thought to be more of an open ended monthly released zine. Over time, the project began to develop into something more. Currently at the sixth issue, The Escapist Manifesto has taken on more of a solidified direction. Come out and celebrate the launch of the continually manifesting Escapist Manifesto!

Zines are only 3$!

This event is one night only!

This summer at Not Your Fathers Contemporary, we would like to cordially invite you to partake in a night of munching, sipping, and learning as we take you on a trip into the fulfilling world of Pizza. Since it’s integration into North American culture, pizza has made itself a land mark and staple in the diets of many peoples. For pizza, it doesn’t matter whether you’re young, old, black, white, brown, yellow… or the works. For pizza the goals have always been clear… at least to some! And this is why we would love if you could come down to the homiest of homie galleries in Toronto and munch, sip, and learn!

The “Za-Za Pizza Party” will keep true to the idea of pizza culture and include the selected toppings of nearly 40 participating artists. Each pizza and topping will be customly prepared and made by artists: David FM Hanes, Julia Kennedy, and Sorjourner-Truth. Two lectures on the significance, history, and enthusiasm of pizza will be givin by David Hanes and a special guest artist. Along with this cheesy event will be a visual showcase of artworks further illustrating the appreciation of pizza that many artists living among us share.

Love will be infused in each and every slice, taste’s will cross the globe, and the passion of youth will energize your mind, body, and spirit. Whether you are a picky pizza eater or a nonchalant pizza eater, this event will pack the topping of your desire. We guarantee it or your money back! (see details below)

Please let us cater to your needs and join us for a night to remember!
