TSVISHN (Yiddish for ‘between’) is a series of pop up projects in the window while we’re in between exhibitions.


Created with Los Angeles-based artist Benny Ferdman at OCAD University, this work formed the body of a life-sized, kinetic elephant sculpture commissioned for the 2018 Ashkenaz Festival parade. For FENTSTER, these sculptural panels are exhibited in this form (independent of the elephant) for the first time.

Participating Artists | Jeremy Aranoff | Bea Aspiras | Louise Carson Suzanne Carson | Jennifer Fedun | Carolyn Howell | Yan Huang | Alanna Kibbe | Jonathan Rotsztain | Marsha Wineman | Shelley Yampolsky together with Yavni Bar-Yam, Avia Moore, David Waldman and many more.

The parade was a part of the WondeRing project at the Ashkenaz Festival produced by FENTSTER Curator Evelyn Tauben together with Creative Ways


A new, never before exhibited block printed fabric piece by Toronto artist Rochelle Rubinstein. Rubinstein is a printmaker, painter, fabric and book artist. Her work has been exhibited at the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Ireland; Yeshiva University Museum, New York; Print Triennial, Estonia; as well as McMaster Museum of Art, Royal Ontario Museum, and Chinese Cultural Centre, in Canada. For eighteen years, Rubinstein was a member of Loop Gallery, where she had regular solo exhibitions, and for seven years she curated monthly exhibitions at Mon Ton Window Gallery, in downtown Toronto, which was the precursor to FENTSTER. Rubinstein is also a steward of Bela Farm, in Hillsburgh, Ontario, where she is engaged in art, agriculture, and activism.
