2019 Storytelling

Storytelling sought to shift the mediation of contemporary art away from conventional modes of interpreting and informing to narrating and embodying through weekly walks and conversations. An intergenerational and multilingual group of storytellers shared personal insights and experiences of the city as they guided visitors through the 2019 Exhibition’s site-specific installations, research, and generative proposals. Storytellers brought submerged narratives to the surface in relation to the history and politics of Toronto’s shifting shoreline.
