Migrating the Margins.
Erika DeFreitas, Anique Jordan, Tau Lewis, Rajni Perera, and Nep Sidhu with public art projects by Farrah Miranda, Otherness, and Sister Co-Resister.

The exhibition looks at the new conditions of artistic production in Toronto reflective of the vast changes in the city's culture as a result of decades of immigration and life in the suburbs. The future is now and it is being defined and imagined differently in Toronto by a new generation of artists operating through principles of cultural mixing.
The FREE Performance Bus departs OCADU (100 McCaul Street) on Fri 15 Sep, 6pm sharp and returns downtown at 9pm. Artist Kiera Boult stages a funeral for the the last-ever Performance Bus! ... more

AGYU Vitrines. Otherness (Marilyn Fernandes and Pamila Matharu). A new commission entitled Taking a Page... questions the Canadian immigrant paradigm by offering up a historiographical lesson on notions of belongingness.

Curating in the Suburbs. At The Underground, York University. Curated and moderated by Emelie Chhangur, On the Edge of Curating: Toward new practices afield is a panel about curating that asks: How is “being on the edge” off-centred curating? Presented as part of the City Institute's Global Symposium Beyond Suburbia, On the Edge of Curating... looks at the specificities of curating in suburbia. Less concerned with highlighting projects and exhibitions that are about the suburbs, panelists Jordan Strom (Surrey Art Gallery, BC), Janine Marchessault (York University, PUBLIC), Randell Adjei (RISE, Scarborough), Émilie Renard (La Galerie, centre d'art contemporain, Noisy-le-Sec), and Emelie Chhangur (AGYU) position the performativity of the suburban context and their own embedded role in its milieu as having a constitutive effect on their working methodologies and on the future geographies of traditionally defined art centres. Dynamo suburban curators, Christine Shaw, Director / Curator at Blackwood Gallery and Alissa Firth-Eagland, Curator of Humber Galleries participate as respondents and to foster a dialogue between this group of curators for the future.
