Join us to kick off the DMG's fall exhibition season with the opening reception for ‘Unsettling’!

Curated by Bojana Videkanic, 'Unsettling' seeks to trouble the narrative of the 150th anniversary of Canada by presenting alternate stories of national identity. The artists in 'Unsettling' — Basil AlZeri, Lori Blondeau, Duorama (Paul Couillard & Ed Johnson), Terrance Houle and Lisa Myers — offer subtle and not so subtle gestures of reversal, of questioning, of disturbance, inviting viewers to pause and think about the space and place they occupy. The exhibition explores themes ranging from the Indigenous history of Scarborough to the proliferation of Modernism, from immigration to urban sprawl, and the underlying tensions between ecology and human intervention, with works that stand perhaps in opposition to presumptive understandings of what Canada is, and the land on which we live.

The reception runs from 5 — 8:30 pm. Curator Bojana Videkanic and artists Basil AlZeri, Lori Blondeau, Paul Couillard and Ed Johnson will be in attendance and will deliver a series of talks at 7 pm.

Take the bus! FREE shuttle bus to the DMG departs OCADU (100 McCaul) at 6 pm, returning at 8:30 pm. Seats limited, RSVP to dmg@utsc.utoronto.ca.
