Sammy Baloji & Filip De Boeck: Urban Now: City Life in Congo

Friday, September 29, 2017
10:00am– 5:00pm

"Urban Now: City Life in Congo" offers an exploration of different urban sites in Congo through photography and video. Focusing upon the "urban now," a moment suspended between the broken dreams of a colonial past and the promises of a neoliberal future, the exhibition offers an artistic and ethnographic investigation of what living - and living together - might mean in Congo’s urban worlds.

Michael Landy: DEMONSTRATION

Friday, September 29, 2017
10:00am– 5:00pm

For "DEMONSTRATION", Landy invites the public to collaborate in building a ‘wall of protest’ by submitting images, words, texts and slogans that represent their thoughts and feelings—of hope or of despair, on matters small or large, from high to low and across the cultural spectrum—to be transformed by the artist into drawings. With the help of assistants, Landy will create from these submissions red and white drawings of protesters, which will be pinned directly on to the walls of the Fleck Clerestory as they are produced in a continually evolving display. Through accumulation the demonstration will grow, capturing Canada’s social and political landscape through the eyes of its inhabitants.
