Reciprocal Encounter: CRCP Thesis Exhibition

Thursday, March 9, 2017 - 7:00pm to Saturday, April 1, 2017 - 5:00pm

Reciprocal Encounter is an exploration of art that asks for more than to be looked at. The exhibition and companion publication represent a tracing of the curator and artists’ memories, connections to land, and sensory experiences of making and looking. The nine artists involved in the project work in various media including animation, installation, photography, and fibre. Selected works include a public art project that fills Toronto with colour and question relationships to the Indigenous histories of Toronto, light-based photographic installations, and sensory work that draws connections to a small island in Eastern Ontario. 

The exhibition opening will coincide with the launch of a publication that explores a history of the senses in art and features the work of the nine artists involved in the exhibition, acting as a mobile, handheld exhibition of the artist projects and the work of two audio artists on a limited edition mixtape.

"Trinity Square Video is excited to present of movement and dwelling, guest curated by Farah Yusuf. The exhibition proposes that a dwelling is more than a physical structure used for the bounding and occupying of space—its construction and habitation are invested with social and symbolic meaning. Just as we inhabit a place, it inhabits us. It is by considering the idea of home through the experience of displacement that we may gain insight into the political, economic, territorial, cultural and social forces that exert influence on our precarity or rootedness within any place."
