Kitchen Table Conversations: Curatorial Walk and Potluck

March 23, 2017

6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Thursday March 23rd, 2017, 6:30-9:00 pm


Join us for a curatorial walk led by the curators of Blood Ties, Genevieve Wallen and Eve Tagny. Following the walk, you are invited to break bread (potluck style) with the curators and two of the featured artists, Omar Badrin and Fallon Simard. Since sharing a meal has the ability to bring people closer and facilitating intimate exchanges, what better way is there to conclude this exhibition? Come and activate a space of communal nourishment and friendliness with us.

In the spirit of the exhibition themes, we are encouraging you to bring family recipes, or a dish that is meaningful to you.

Because of the nature of this event, seating is limited to 15 people. Each participant must RSVP through Eventbrite. The first 15 people to register will be contacted via email with further instructions.

About the exhibition

Blood ties features works by:
Omar Badrin, Aditi Ohri, Shahir Omar-Qrishnaswamy Fallon Simard, Eve Tagny

Blood Ties explores the spiritual and material bonds that shape familial histories and intimacies. By presenting narratives of individuals from transnational and translocal families, this exhibition demonstrates the ways in which multi-local identities embody a web of geographical encounters and cultural memories. The selected artworks demonstrate how one’s familial identity is subjected to social and spatial negotiations underlining periods of longing, absence and change. This exhibition examines contemporary family “units” as a threshold allowing conversations about one’s relationship to their immediate landscape, spaces connected to ancestral memories, and cultural exchanges mapping colonial legacies.

Blood Ties is part of Myseum of Toronto Intersections, an annual festival of exhibits exploring different perspectives on the city’s natural, cultural, and historical diversity.
