What Do You Wish?

A wish is a desire connected to the heart and mind, conscious and unconscious. There is great power in a wish; it begins an energy movement. Thinking, writing, revealing a wish helps one to understand one’s self more and prioritize actions. Related to hope, wishes become a constant reminder of how life can be better.

THE WISH SISTERS

On July 16th, Culture Lounge’s new exhibit WISH, created by Day De Dada and organized by Gena Mimozo, will ask visitors to the gallery space at the St. George Terminal, “What do you wish?”   

The exhibition will feature wish themed mail art sent in from around the world, short videos and the Whispering Wishes sound installation.Culture Lounge visitors will have the opportunity to make their own wishes, write a wish on a cloth strip and tie it on the fence installation, create mail art wishes to send off to someone or make a wish on the spot with some guidance from The Wish Sisters.

The Wish Sisters – Viv de Dada, Jennifer Weigel, Mary Campbell, Barbara Lubliner, Margaret Chase, Lydia Grey, and Milenka Berengolc –  will collect wishes at various times throughout the exhibition.
