The Art Gallery of Ontario's First Thursday: Still Nasty is guest curated by first-year Criticism & Curatorial Practice Graduate Students, with programming that features current students and alumni from the Interdisciplinary Master's in Art, Media and Design program.

Thursday, March 2 from 7:00 pm to 11:30 pm

"The night’s program aims to explore, through a feminist lens, a future that imagines possibilities for diversity of representation and experiences—a future that is more open, more free, more feminist, and non-deterministic. Headlining, with a live performance on the mainstage in Walker Court, is the celebrated queer Black feminist artist—and Toronto legend—d’bi.young anitafrika with her band The 333.

The program features installations and performances by Toronto-based artists Hazel Meyer (MFA, IAMD 2010), whose work explores relationships between sport, sexuality and feminism; Mariam Magsi (MFA candidate, IAMD 2017) an interdisciplinary artist working across installation, performance, fashion and photography; and Zahra Saleki an Iranian-born emerging photographer and installation artist whose work tells stories of unique locales and the people who inhabit them. Artists Golboo Amani and Coco Guzman will also present projects of the hands-on, interactive variety, including Amani’s Unsettling Settlers of Catan, an expansion pack that acts as an intervention into the board game Settlers of Catan, unsettling the colonial narrative of the game.

Plus, don’t miss pop-up talks by artist Aylan Couchie (MFA candidate, IAMD 2018), curator and writer Genevieve Flavelle and Robin McDonald, and a special collection of artwork on display in our monthly Out of the Vaults installation. And as always, dine on the delicious food and drinks featured in our Night Market, and pick up a artist-designed program edition on your way in."

Curators: Hannah Hubicki, Karina Iskandarsjah, Veronika Ivanova, Julia Laweh, Diane Mikhael, Lida Shanehchiyan, Christian Siroyt, Jesse Wardell, Elizaveta Zhurkovskaya
