Exhibition: Against Apartheid

KARST Gallery, 2023

Curated by Ashish Ghadiali, Against Apartheid explores the origins of climate apartheid through the work of international contemporary artists, activists and scientists.

UN Special Rapporteur, Philip Alston, has dubbed the potential outcome of anthropogenic climate change as “climate apartheid” – where life becomes impossible for increasing sections of the human population. This scenario would predominantly impact black and brown communities living on the frontlines of climate breakdown.

Against Apartheid situates this projected future in historic ecologies of empire – African enslavement, the middle passage, the plantation and the genocide of indigenous peoples as well as the geopolitics of international borders, urban air pollution and species migration.

Featured artists include: Sue Williamson, Khaled Jarrar, Forensic Oceanography, Annalee Davis, Kiluanji Kia Henda, Sylvie Séma Glissant, Kedisha Coakley, Angela Camacho, Ashanti Hare and Iman Datoo.

Exhibition: On a Table Over Time 

The Plumb, Toronto, 2023

The tradition of recipes becomes part of identity. Both personal and communal, these often inherited and repeated sets of instructions show the qualities of the place we come from, as well as the people within it. Over generations, through our sense of taste, we combine and consume our environment as food and drink to create a concept of ourselves and where we come from.

Alvin Luong, Benjamin De Boer, Brigida Cuddemi, Carrie Perreault, Dave Dyment, Dupla Molcajete (Beatriz Paz Jimenez & Zoe Heyn-Jones), Iman Datoo, Justin Ming Yong, Kelly Mark, Marli Davis, Walter Scott
