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.
Migrating the Margins looks to the future of Toronto art. 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

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. Everyone welcome ... more

AGYU Vitrines. Otherness (Marilyn Fernandes and Pamila Matharu).
