Where We Are Now: Mapping Toronto’s Contemporary Art Histories

A discussion with Wanda Nanibush and Sarah Robayo Sheridan

Friday October 23 – 6 pm

Participants
Wanda Nanibush, Guest Curator, Art Gallery of Ontario and Sarah Robayo Sheridan, Curator, Justina M. Barnicke Gallery and the University of Toronto Art Centre.

Wanda Nanibush and Sarah Robayo Sheridan will discuss some of the nascent ideas of a history not yet written – the history of contemporary art in Toronto. At once definitively regional and highly international, over the past half-century artists have remapped the city both onto itself and within the realm of global cultural practices. Focusing on indigenous art in Toronto, as well as conceptual art and media art, the speakers will explore the relation between the evolving social and cultural landscape of the city and the artists who live and work here.

Wanda Nanibush is an Anishinaabe-kwe image and word warrior, curator, and community organizer living in her territory of Chimnissing. Currently Nanibush is a guest curator at the Art Gallery of Ontario and touring her exhibition The Fifth World which opens January 2016 at Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery.

Sarah Robayo Sheridan is Curator at the Justina M. Barnicke Gallery and the University of Toronto Art Centre.

Talks last approximately one hour and are complimentary with admission.

Visit our booth and pick up C Magazine issue 127 “Poetry,” guest-edited by Kari Cwynar, cheyanne turions and Danielle St-Amour.
