Theatre of Disjunctions responds to the disappearance of historic architecture in due to socio-political turmoil, inadequate maintenance and negligence. Local artists Lizz Aston, Marina Fathalla, Layne Hinton and Carson Teal help rethink architectural preservation through curatorial practice. The exhibition re-examines the relationship between art and politics during an investigation of Toronto theatre architecture and its contribution to the city’s gentrification effort in early 1990s. The exhibition stages a comprehensive experience speaking to the conditions of people who are marginalized and rejected in the history of modernization. Each artwork contemplates and reflects different lines of narrative in the collective historical psyche inside the gallery’s adaptive-reused architecture of the former transit loop.

Vernissage, Tuesday March 29th, 6pm – 9pm

Movie Screening: “The Artist” and panel discussion “Obsolescence: Performing in the Age of Technology”, Friday April 1st, 6pm – 9pm
