Presented by the Doris McCarthy Gallery
In the Gallery
Works by Kelly Fyffe-Marshall, Aaron Jones & Ebti Nabag
Curated by Anique Jordan
In Partnership with Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival
Supported by the Ontario Arts Council Culturally Diverse Curatorial Project Grant
October 3 – December 19, 2020
Centralized in the Scarborough community of Malvern, Three-Thirty investigates the way power is exercised through the construction, manipulation and occupation of space. This multi-site exhibition focuses on youth and after school culture as a time of possibility and meaning making in which young people assert how they mark, claim and inhabit their community. It is a project more broadly asking how one influences their environments when they are told they do not have the power to do so.

From Boys to Men: The Road to Healing
October 3, 2020 – Ongoing
Anthony Gebrehiwot's From Boys to Men: The Road to Healing challenges how masculinity can fit into today's society by focusing on the act of care. This series is a continuation of Gebrehiwot's From Boys To Men, presented in Scarborough's 2019 Nuit Blanche.
From Boys to Men: The Road to Healing features portraits of artists from RISE (Reaching Intelligent Souls Elsewhere), a Scarborough-based, youth-led, movement that provides opportunities and spaces for youth to develop artistically, professionally, and spiritually. This series looks at the means by which masculinity can manifest in healthy and inclusive ways. Road to Healing focuses on the release from toxic masculinity by reconsidering the biased ways of thinking and acting towards self-awareness as a strategy of collective recovery as activism.
