Junk-Shaped-Chocolate-Making Workshop

This event is part of TRACES, a group exhibition currently shown at Ryerson Artspace.

"Corrosive Sweetness" is an installation and performance created by Dana Prieto. It is composed by a pile of chocolate candies shaped after singular pieces of litter that were found in the gallery’s surrounding neighbourhoods. This work explores the poetry of garbage in relation with marginalized histories and systems of value and disparity in gentrified areas of Toronto's West End. 

"Corrosive Sweetness" continues this conversation by inviting people to Ryerson Artspace in order to create their own pieces of junk-treats.

An Artist Talk and the Junk-Shaped-Chocolate-Making Workshop will take place on November 4th, 2016, 3 – 5 pm, @ Ryerson Artspace. 
The event is free and requires registration. 
All materials will be provided except for your own preferred piece of garbage.
