Lezli Rubin Kunda (with Ellen Moffat): Exhibition and Performance

Lezli Rubin-Kunda, a multi-disciplinary artist currently based in Israel is presenting her book-based performance works in several related events in Toronto in September - a live collaborative performance, a screening of book-based performance videos, an exhibition of books and book performances and an artist’s talk.
