Spurred by ongoing “urban renewal” taking place in Toronto communities, What would the community think? explores how artists navigate issues of gentrification and displacement from an critical, intersectional feminist perspective. Through performance, video, internet memes and installation, the exhibition questions the role of artists in the process of gentrification, and how critical acts may become productive forces for solidarity and action in our communities.
