Toronto: Tributes + Tributaries Artists' Talk
Wednesday, February 8
Art Gallery of Ontario
Join curator Wanda Nanibush in conversation with artists FASTWÜRMS, Vera Frenkel, Duke Redbird, Ato Seitu, Lisa Steele and Kim Tomczak about their past and current work, and see the changes to Toronto: Tributes + Tributaries, 1971-1989.
The exhibition now includes major installations by Jayce Salloum Vera Frenkel, Lisa Steele and Kim Tomczak, FASTWÜRMS as well as newly installed works by Andy Patton, Robert Flack, Douglas Walker, Colette Whiten, Murray Favro and more. Toronto: Tributes + Tributaries, 1971-1989 brings together more than 100 works by 65 artists and collectives to highlight an innovative period in Toronto art history. The title references the city’s many buried waterways and serves as a visual metaphor for the diversity of the city's art scene and its similarly buried histories. Intended as an evolving display, many of the works in the exhibition have been rotated, inviting visitors to rediscover even more artists from this period.
