SUNDAY SCENE / Emelie Chhangur

The Power Plant

Every Sunday, speakers from the world of art and beyond offer their responses to the current exhibitions. Whether focusing on a single work/artist or on multiple exhibitions, guest presenters draw provocative connections between our programs and broader cultural and intellectual debates.
Emelie Chhangur is an artist, curator and writer based in Toronto, where she is Assistant Director / Curator of the Art Gallery of York University. Over the past decade, Chhangur has developed an experimental curatorial practice in collaboration with artists. She is interested in how exhibitions and texts perform to create unique interpretative experiences and in enacting activisms from within an institutional framework.
