Dear Crum,

I am very pleased to inform you that your film ‘Crumbruler’ was selected to be part of the Toronto Urban Film Festival, running from September 10-19, 2010. It was chosen by Min Sook Lee for the ‘Urban Ideas and Politics‘ program, and will screen as part of a 10-film program (one film every ten minutes) on September 13th.

80 films were selected this year, out of a total of 355 submissions from 25 countries. Each film submitted was reviewed by one of our seven guest jurors / programmers. TUFF is seen by an audience of over 1.3 million daily commuters on the subway platforms of Toronto’s transit system. Your film will cycle throughout the day with the other chosen films in your category.  Again this year, TUFF is pleased to announce that Film Zones will air TUFF content non-stop during the entire 10 days of the festival, on screens in select downtown stations.

The piece of found information is a vintage mail-out bulletin that announces your artist talk at articule on Friday, April 16th (circa 1985). Please see the attached jpg image.

The CRUM has mailed out a copy of this archival artist talk announcement to the gallery’s current mailing list.

The members of the CRUM will be on location at 1012 rue de la Montagne (articule’s original address) to greet all those interested in hearing your talk on Friday, April 16, 2010.

The CRUM will be wearing blue name tags identifying each of the five members as, respectively, LIZ MAGOR, LIZ MAGOR, LIZ MAGOR, LIZ MAGOR, LIZ MAGOR and LIZ MAGOR.

As a small token of the CRUM’s appreciation for you and your work, we will also send you a name tag in the mail. We hope you enjoy it.
