Description

Xpace Cultural Centre presents three new exhibitions.

Andre Baynes, lwrds Duniam & Aemilius Milo, Dana Prieto, Sheila Sampath, and Rowan Sky, curated by Geneviève Wallen

For Us by Us is a cross-disciplinary exhibition, featuring emerging artists and designers, exploring ideas of ‘alternative’ futures and communal empowerment through food. Through examining the conditions within which food is grown, produced, and consumed in Toronto and Ontario, the selected artists and designers propose to reconsider our relationship with our goods. More specifically, in the context of this exhibition, food becomes an access point to re-imagine land sovereignty, communal emancipation, accessible and equitable food systems, as well as a sustainable future for all.

Laurence Philomene & Starchild Stela

The work presented is a combination of photographic prints and original illustrations showcasing colourful portraits of young gender non-conforming Canada-based artists and creators making their mark on what it means to be transgender here and abroad. Overall, this exhibition is meant to be a welcoming space, carrying through the idea of acceptance and representation of all gender expressions, and inviting Torontonians to discuss and share their experiences around gender identity.

Erin Rei

Erin Rei’s installation explores the concept of soft armour asserting that softness is not equal to weakness. The acts of being open, receptive, actively empathetic and performing emotional labour require strength in enacting and cultivating them. Soft armour is neither infallible nor impermeable. It is created over time, it takes damage, is regenerated and altered.
