Join us on March 29, at 6 pm, for the 'Where Are You From? Where Are You Going?' exhibition Panel Discussion and Closing Reception, in the Glass Pavilion at Mississauga Celebration Square (beside Central Library).
'Where Are You From? Where Are You Going?' brings together a group of intergenerational Black and Indigenous artists who are using their artwork and voices to take up public space to represent and share perspectives and experiences from their communities and cultures. The discussion will centre these perspectives and bodies which have often been historically silenced or left in the margins of Canadian art.
The 'Where Are You From? Where Are You Going' screen exhibition will be on display on the Mississauga Celebration Square outdoor screens from March 7 - 30, 2018. The contributing artists are: Aura, Chief Lady Bird, Gordon Shadrach, Lamoi Simmonds, Othello Grey, Quentin VerCetty and Tennille Dowers.
