In venues across the city, Myseum Intersections will tell Toronto’s stories through art, architecture, performances, and exhibits, while highlighting the history of social change alongside current trends. Partners will include Heritage Toronto, major cultural institutions such as the Art Gallery of Ontario, The Power Plant, and the Gardiner Museum, alongside community venues such as Enoch Turner Schoolhouse and Daniels Spectrum. Programming ranges from historic to contemporary issues presented via exhibits, events and interactive community experiences.
“We’re really excited to see so many cultural organizations and institutions coming together to focus on sharing different perspectives in Toronto. We look forward to seeing Torontonians experience programming throughout all areas of the city,” says Karen Carter, Executive Director, Myseum of Toronto. “These intersections present new ways of illuminating Toronto’s past, understanding its present, and imagining its future.”
Myseum Intersections launches on March 6, 2016 – Toronto’s birthday – and runs through March 31, 2016.
