Main space: What would the community think?
@gothshakira, Bonerkill, Kiera Boult, Sofy Mesa
curated by Emily Gove
September 9 - October 15, 2016

Spurred by ongoing “urban renewal” taking place in Toronto communities, What would the community think? explores how artists navigate issues of gentrification and displacement from an critical, intersectional feminist perspective. Through performance, video, internet memes and installation, the exhibition questions the role of artists in the process of gentrification, and how critical acts may become productive forces for solidarity and action in our communities.

Window space: Stacie Ant
September 9 - October 21, 2016
Stacie Ant works with multi-media in order to create satirical work that comments on social behavior and trends on the internet. Ant's latest work has evolved into a series of video installations and performances that deal with New Age culture and conspiracy theories. This exhibition was created during Xpace's summer residency program for OCAD U graduates.

Project space: Dana Prieto
September 9 - October 15, 2016
Dana Prieto's practice explores spaces, materials and actions that embody constitutional stories of her cultural, class and gender identity. her work repurposes ordinary objects creating immersive installations that propose participatory experiences. This exhibition was created during Xpace's summer residency program for OCAD U graduates.
