The Shoreline Dilemma
Curated by Candice Hopkins and Tairone Bastien, the Biennial’s first edition, The Shoreline Dilemma, explores the implications of Toronto’s ever-changing shoreline—evidence of an increasingly anthropocentric world—in the context of a central question: What does it mean to be in relation?
For 72 days this fall, the inaugural event will take place in repurposed buildings, public spaces, and partner institutions, including galleries, museums, train stations, and community organizations, along the waterfront and throughout the Greater Toronto Area. The Biennial presents Canadian, Indigenous, and international art and programming that together explore significant and complex issues within the context of Toronto’s local specificities and histories.
TELLINGS: A Post-Human Vocal Concert - Nov 16
TELLINGS: A Post-Human Vocal Concert seeks to challenge traditional conceptions of voice. Artists working experimentally with sound—live electronics, deep listening, sound art—perform compositions that explore new modes of vocal production.
