Guided tour of the exhibition followed by a neighbourhood walk to meet local air, animals, land, plants and water

Lisa Deanne Smith, curator of How to Breathe Forever, will guide visitors through a tour of the exhibition, followed by a 30-45 minute walk in the local vicinity, paying special attention and attempting to shift perspectives of how to observe and respect local air, animals, land, plants and water.

Tour begins and ends at Onsite Gallery (199 Richmond St. West)
Light refreshments will be provided

 

How to Breathe Forever underlines the importance and interconnectedness of air, animals, land, plants and water. The belief that everything in the universe has a place and deserves equal respect is the core of this exhibition and positions our relations with others  ̶including the ‘natural’ world  ̶as active and reciprocal. The exhibition invites you to consider an expanded personhood that attentively collaborates and exchanges with living things.

 

Lisa Deanne Smith is the curator of Onsite Gallery at OCAD University. Her practice includes curating, writing, community events and art that explore issues of voice, experience and power. Recent curatorial projects include How to Breathe Forever, The Sunshine Eaters, Objects for Listening: Cheryl Pope; Ads for People: Selling Ethics in the Digital Age and I Wonder: Marian Bantjes. She has previously held positions at YYZ Artists’ Outlet, Gallery 44 and the Association of Independent Video and Filmmakers. Selected exhibitions of her work include White Columns (NY), The New Museum (NY) and Mercer Union (Toronto). She earned an MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art, 1995 and an AOCA from OCAD University, 1993.
