nuit blanche

At the Corner of Time and Place
Presently dominated by Chinatown and first settled by British gentry
in the nineteenth century, the area surrounding Dundas and McCaul has developed
over the years through the ongoing arrivals of diverse inhabitants from around the world.
The varied cultures represented in the local citizenry - and the multiple histories
and geographies that they embody - define the area's true character.

From day to day, how much attention do we pay to the value that this heterogeneity
brings to this neighbourhood? Each work in this exhibition is built on some combination
of invoking history, suspending time or traversing geographies. As such, we are invited
to come together to share experiences, not only with the works of art,
but also with our neighbours who inhabit our local, global, virtual and imagined spaces.

Michelle Jacques, Curator.
Michelle Jacques is a Toronto-based curator, writer and educator,
who currently holds the position of Assistant Curator of Contemporary Art
at the Art Gallery of Ontario.
