The Scene Sonic Youth's Lee Ranaldo featured at T.O. art fair

TORONTO -- A "collaborative work" by Sonic Youth guitarist Lee Ranaldo and his Winnipeg-born wife Leah Singer will be among the projects on display at Toronto's all-night art fair, Scotiabank Nuit Blanche.
Four Canadian curators have been picked to assemble exhibits along the city's main drag, Yonge Street, on Oct. 2.
Ranaldo was tapped by Anthony Kiendl, director of Winnipeg's Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art, who will also present work from New York conceptual artist Dan Graham.
Gerald McMaster of the Art Gallery of Ontario will curate an exhibit inspired by "the mystery of the untamed night" featuring France's Agnes Winter and New York's digital artists The Open Ended Group.
Sarah Robayo Sheridan of Toronto's Mercer Union is working with the United Kingdom's Ryan Gander and Toronto's Darren O'Donnell, while Christof Migone, director of the Blackwood Gallery in Mississauga, Ont., will feature artists including France's Davide Balula and Halifax's Michael Fernandes.
The annual event is slated to feature nearly 100 independent projects across the city. Full details are expected to be announced in July.
