Radio Equals, initiated by claude wittmann in 2014, consists of one-on-one conversations about equality in as egalitarian a way as possible. The hour-long conversations are broadcast live in the gallery on select dates and at claudewittmann.ca/radio/radio_equals_TPW.html. They are not recorded; listeners are invited to be present in the gallery during the broadcasts. The conversations are designed as a relay, with each conversation partner inviting the next.

Radio Equals is a project initiated by claude wittmann in 2014 and which has been given life by about 15 people up until now. Radio Equals aims at being a thread of bodies and minds exploring equality in process and content and it manifests sporadically as one-on-one egalitarian, one-hour long conversations about equality. The conversations take place in intimate settings, such as a sound booth in a performance art festival, a closed kitchen of a gallery, a home or an office and this intimacy is extended to listeners through the intrinsic quality of live radio, be it FM narrowcast and/or FM broadcast and/or live streaming through an internet channel (NAISA, CFRC, CKUT. Wikiradio UQAM, Radio Equals temporary live-streaming site). Radio Equals is not recorded or podcasted.

Rodrigo Marti is a Mexican-Canadian artist working primarily in drawing, painting and installation. He has a Bachelor Degree from Concordia University and an MFA in Social Practices from OTIS. His work traces personal, familial and cultural histories in an empirical process of discovery that is constantly negotiating his role, rights and responsibilities as an artist, citizen and an individual. His recent body of work looks at his historical use of imagery and weaves personal mythologies through a drawing diary, assemblages and the making of stage props that mark pseudo-fictional life events. He currently lives and works in Toronto.
