Nine Inch Nails & Soundgarden

Trent Reznor is back from the depths with his strangulating, pulsating music sure to send every heart beating and ravaged with music that will even cause trepidations within the most tenacious souls. Reznor during his hiatus from Nine Inch Nails has done some soundtrack work notably for movie The Social Network. The man who wailed the words “Head Like a Hole” will surely send shivers down every spine.

Chris Cornell and the boys are back with their thunderous rock. Their best CD Superunknown charted several signals including “My Wave,” “Black Hole Sun,” and “Spoon Man.” Cornell can scream with the best of rock’s heavy weights including the iconic Robert Plant and Ozzy Osbourne. The guitar riffs of Kim Thayil accompanied with the unequalled vocals of Cornell has transported Soundgarden into the strastosphere.

This is likely a night you do not want to miss!

The Thompson Landry Gallery is excited to welcome Virginie Bocaert, for her third solo exhibition in Toronto. Body and Soul is comprised of works from her eagerly anticipated new series which exudes deep emotions through her beautifully expressive style. Bocaert’s work encapsulates feminine sensuality exploring, the intimate link between our physical body and the spiritual nature of the soul.
Virginie Bocaert’s emotionally inspired paintings are like breathlessly diving into the figures that emerge from the depths of her backgrounds. In her latest series, each work exudes a raw passion. Bocaert’s style has evolved by her use of both photography and paint on her canvases with the figures are becoming much more developed, and taking on a strong personality of their own.
