Saturday, Apr. 10 – Sunday, May 30
Fort York Visitor Centre, Collision Gallery and online / Free
For several years, non-profit Myseum of Toronto has been on a mission to deliver local art and culture to all corners of the city with an emphasis on collaboration and inclusion featuring online activity combined with some live events. They encourage Torontonians to share their stories as part of the curation process. Their annual arts festival Intersections celebrating these diverse, multi-faceted perspectives pivots to a new hybrid model this year, which will include socially distanced outdoor exhibits and virtual events. Festival highlights include:
Women in Hip Hop:
An Ear Appeal Project
Saturday, Apr. 10 – Saturday, May 15
Collision Gallery (outdoor exhibit)
18 Wellington, Commerce Court
Presented by art collective Ear Appeal, this project showcases the past, present and future of female MCs in a traditionally male-dominated space. The intersecting experiences of gender, race, sexuality and ability are shared through live performances, video presentations, and visual art. The project’s highlight is a pre-recorded artist showcase featuring Dijah SB, Exmiranda and Keysha Fresh.
Images of Resistance:
An Archive of Action
Saturday, Apr. 10 – Tuesday, May 18
Fort York Visitor Centre (outdoor exhibit)
This exhibit combines interviews, documents and photographs of the 2008-2009 Toronto protests against the genocidal war in Sri Lanka when protestors shutdown the Gardiner expressway, stopping traffic – the highway that roars just above the space. Organized by the Tamil Canadian Centre for Civic Action.
Here and There
