Almanda Negreiros Gallery Portuguese Consulate 438 University Ave, Suite 1400, Toronto, Ontario

Almada Negreiros Gallery at the Portuguese Consulate in Toronto presents the photographs of OCAD alumnus Danny Custodio.
Custodio's Azulejos provides glimpses into the life of the labourer through Portuguese ceramic tile murals. In his photographs printed onto tiles, he assumes the roles of those who laboured – not only for survival, but for the love of tending a garden and the ensuing sense of pride. This work is a means for him to piece together the tales passed down by his ancestors, and in re-enacting these moments, he adopts and perpetuates that history.
