Light Grows the Tree

Sat. 31 Aug, 2019 10:00 am - Sat. 23 Nov, 2019 4:00 pm

Aug. 31 to Nov. 23 — Light Grows the Tree. Documenting a community of Black artists, writers, curators and collectors in Toronto. Taken by four photographers over two months, these portraits do the work of making the Black arts community visible. The stakes of Black culture in Canada are high. Systemic racism in the form of violence and exclusion tears at the fabric of our many communities. Through visual arts we create new worlds and make sense of our histories, we are emboldened to confront the prerogatives of a multiculturalism that eclipses our integral place in the nation. There is such rich nuance to Blackness here: it is no single thing. Our endeavours are held in the memories of several generations of folks who have shaped the Black arts scene through their various contributions. Going into the future we need to know of each other’s existence. Just as a tree needs light to grow, this community requires attention to focus and develop. In this first chapter, Light Grows The Tree begins the process of acknowledging those who have been the life force of Black arts in Toronto.”

Light Grows the Tree

Sat. 31 Aug, 2019 10:00 am - Sat. 23 Nov, 2019 4:00 pm

Aug. 31 to Nov. 23 — Light Grows the Tree. Documenting a community of Black artists, writers, curators and collectors in Toronto. Taken by four photographers over two months, these portraits do the work of making the Black arts community visible. The stakes of Black culture in Canada are high. Systemic racism in the form of violence and exclusion tears at the fabric of our many communities. Through visual arts we create new worlds and make sense of our histories, we are emboldened to confront the prerogatives of a multiculturalism that eclipses our integral place in the nation. There is such rich nuance to Blackness here: it is no single thing. Our endeavours are held in the memories of several generations of folks who have shaped the Black arts scene through their various contributions. Going into the future we need to know of each other’s existence. Just as a tree needs light to grow, this community requires attention to focus and develop. In this first chapter, Light Grows The Tree begins the process of acknowledging those who have been the life force of Black arts in Toronto.”
