Our Story

Opening in November 2018, Craft Services has become a staple for Gallery visitors and the surrounding community. With fresh baking daily, as well as a selection of breakfast and lunch items, the café has exactly what you need to nourish your body after feasting on the incredible artwork on view upstairs in the Galleries

“Craft services” is the centre of a film set’s social scene. The area is the great equalizer. The quality of the spread can make or break the crew’s experience. A good craft services crew is responsible for the physical and mental well-being of the entire set. 

Craft Services is the creative engine for the creative industries, where visual art, food, music, poetry, film, movement and more will intermingle and create transformative experiences. 

Bill Burns

 

Bird Radio and the Eames Chair Lounge consists of a set of jerry-rigged bird calls, a radio transmitter, a microphone, a series of drawings, blueprints, photographs, as well as Barcode of Life wallpaper.

Bill Burns was born into a book-selling family in Regina, Saskatchewan. He received an MA from Goldsmiths College in London where he worked with Gerard Hemsworth and John Latham.  Since that time his work about nature and civil society has been shown at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London; the KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; and the Seoul Museum of Art, Seoul.

He has published more than a dozen artist books and audio recordings with publishers such as Walther Konig in Cologne and Space Poetry in Copenhagen. He has been Artistic Director of the Dogs and Boats and Airplanes choir since 2010. His most recent book, Hans Ulrich Obrist Hear Us (2015), is published by YYZ BOOKS, Toronto, and Black Dog Publishing, London. He lives in Toronto, Canada.
