Meeting- Place discusses the notion of a collective or community experience, draws upon individual and shared histories and highlights the significance of one’s sensory perception of space. 

View full project description

Nestled in the heart of Toronto’s West Queen West neighbourhood sits Artscape Youngplace, a renovated schoolhouse and building pulsating with many voices and sounds. It is a social gathering space, a meet-up spot, a-cross-paths-in-front-of, tell stories-about, and be-a-part-of-it’s-stories kind of space. It’s a place that holds history but always looks towards the future.

'Meeting-Place'
 discusses the notion of a collective or community experience, draws upon individual and shared histories and highlights the significance of one’s sensory perception of space. This exhibition brings together a group of artists whose independent projects speak to the cultural landscape and sociopolitical significance of Canada as a meeting place. Projects further examine the notion of time; past and present as experienced by the differing communities that make up our memories and the stories of Canada. The presented works include multi-media installations, video and photography. Artist’s call for audience participation both as listeners and visionaries, to reflect upon our changing landscape and unique voice.
