Movers and Makers

September 15 at 11:00 am - December 23 at 5:00 pm

Free

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.

This exhibition is presented in partnership with Prefix Institute of Contemporary Art.

Curated by Betty Julian
