Art Gallery of Ontario (T.O. Downtown)
final day of exhibition 7pm
Elizabeth Czartoryski: The Perch / performance installation and photoworks.
Performance schedule: Thur 7 Sep, 7pm & 8pm // Tues 12 Sep, 7pm. // Thur 14 Sep, 7pm. // Sat 16 Sep, 7pm.
The Perch is the second installment of a larger body of work orbiting around the idea of a gender truce. The exhibition includes time-based performances, a sculptural wall and photoworks that enlarge the aperture of gender difference.
Gender equity continues to be mistreated and misguided. In order to broaden the spectrum of our gender roles, and invent new ones, we must first surrender to existing prescriptions of social convention. These prescriptive ingredients disrupt our bodies from fully engaging in the creation of a gender-neutral equilibrium.
Within the rituals of our everyday lives, we are left with residual anxiety that consumes our desire to embrace each other as equals and re-imagine ourselves. We must strip to our flesh, express our vulnerability, and remind each other that we are all the same. [...].

walking salon 1pm
Sister Co-Resister: A Walking Salon. Can walking be political? This discursive walking salon is focused on walking side-by-side with Indigenous, 2-spirit, and trans lives as a means to work through concepts of belonging, what it means to deconstruct the proprietary understanding of land, and to find ways to question Canada's immigrant paradigm and treaty partnership identity. As an act of Indigenous sovereignty (land, culture, and people) that also migrates the physical margins of York's campus, this ambulatory salon centres the points of view of Indigenous social thinkers: Nettie Lambert, Shane Camastro (Titiesg Wîcinímintôwak Bluejays Dancing Together Collective), Janet Csontos, and Lisa Myers.
