luminato1Next week marks the beginning of this year’s Luminato festival in Toronto (June 5 – 14, to be precise) and there are a wealth of exciting, free events happening that include live music performances, dance lessons, book readings, film screenings and a World Record attempt. Two events, in particular, jump right off the page to us: Raphael Mazzucco’s Mixed Media Installation and Shadow Notes: with Danny Clinch, Ralph Gibson & Andy Summers (yes – Andy Summers from The Police).

Mazzucco’s work has been featured in ELLE and Vogue magazines and his exhibition (which runs for the entirety of the festival at 639 Queen St. W on the 3rd floor of the Burroughes Building) of new and commissioned works that draw their inspiration from L’Oréal Professionnel’s Century of Color, Lancôme’s magic of femininity and Luminato’s festival programming.

Shadow Notes is an unprecedented exhibition presenting the work of Danny Clinch and Ralph Gibson, two photographers obsessed with music, and the photos of Andy Summers, a musician obsessed with photography. The all-day event takes place June 5 at Yonge-Dundas Square and includes a panel discussion with all three artists.

Check them out… and see what else is on the schedule!
