Movers and Makers
September 15 – December 23, 2022
Curated by Betty Julian

Movers and Makers is a group exhibition featuring photographic work by four early-career Toronto-based artists: Aaron Jones, Christina Leslie, Dainesha Nugent-Palache and Bidemi Oloyede.

While the past few years have had a devastating impact on many people, it has been especially hard for those of the Black diaspora, as the two overlapping catastrophes of racism and the pandemic have taken a profound toll. Movers and Makers speaks to the challenges of the present moment by invoking a desired future of Black optimism. It does so by furthering the goal of its precursor Movers and Shakers (2018, presented at Prefix Institute of Contemporary Art) to provide a much-needed exhibition opportunity for local early-career artists, while critically shifting toward Black artists who address their subjectivity through artistic strategies of photographic experimentation.

Presented in partnership with Prefix Institute of Contemporary Art.
