    DJ NaNa believes that the art of Turntablism is a science. The same precision and dedication scientists put into research and experiments, is what NaNa is known for putting into his own artform. His influences range from the common (Wu Tang Clan, Outkast, A Tribe Called Quest, Jay-Z). to the not so obvious (Zamfir, Portishead, Lamb, Fleetwood Mac), and everything else in between. A true music connoisseur, his knowledge of diverse genres of music is almost as impressive as his knack for combining them.

    Eryka and Sofí Gudiño invite you to The Space's next art party, Legal Alien. Toronto artists occupy the Drake Underground, creating a multimedia immersive art experience filled with visual masterpieces, sculpture, and performance.

    Toronto is considered one of the most multi-cultural cities on the planet. Many of us who were born here feel intense ties to our cultural roots elsewhere. Legal Alien seeks to showcase Torontonian artists with global roots to explore their experience in the Western art world. How does our heritage affect our work? How do we strive to maintain our authenticity and continue stretching the borders of our imaginations?
