Join us at 5 Lower Jarvis for Storytelling sessions led by Emily DiCarlo.

Storytelling sessions combine modes of conventional interpretation with artist-led, narrative and embodied responses. Storytellers offer weekly guided sessions, informal conversations, and spot tours to intergenerational audiences at TBA’s main sites. Sharing personal insights and experiences of the city as well as offering perspectives on the artworks within the exhibitions, they guide visitors through the research and artist practises that form What Water Knows, The Land Remembers.

Sundays from 11am–12pm and 2–3pm

April 3, 10, 17, 24
May 1, 8, 15, 22, 29
June 4

Note: For the last week of the 2022 Biennial, Storytelling will be available at 5 Lower Jarvis on Saturday, June 4th.

Emily DiCarlo (she/her) is an artist and writer whose interdisciplinary practice considers site, temporality, and collaboration as the foundational principles for meaning-making. Evidenced through installation, video, performance, and text, her work connects the infrastructure of time with the intimacy of duration. Since 2016, she has served as the Communications Officer for the International Society for the Study of Time. Her work has been shown both locally and abroad, with recent exhibitions at the Art Museum, Toronto, and SÍM Gallery in Reykjavik, Iceland as part of their artist-in-residence program. She recently held a Canadian Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) grant.
