Dear friends and community: In keeping with lockdown measures we have temporarily closed the gallery. With classes going fully online and UTSC campus implementing stricter building closure measures, our priority is the health and safety of our staff and guests. We look forward to welcoming you back soon! In the meantime, we are working hard to bring you online programming and we are exploring different ways that you can stay engaged with our current exhibitions Three-Thirty curated by Anique Jordan in partnership with Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival & From Boys to Men: The Road to Healing presented in partnership with Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival. Stay tuned and stay safe out there.

From Boys to Men: The Road to Healing
Meditations on Masculinities and Love
February 17, 2021 @ 5:30 – 7:30 pm
March 3, 2021 @ 5:30 – 7:30 pm
*Please note this program is now waitlisted*
This two-part program provides the space for those who identify as men to explore topics surrounding masculinities in a conversation guided by artist and community leader Anthony Gebrehiwot. The program looks to bell hooks’ text The Will to Change: Men, Masculinity, and Love and Gebrehiwot’s exhibition From Boys to Men: The Road to Healing as starting points to talk about masculinities as they relate to family, childhood, mental health, sexuality, and love. Meditations on Masculinities and Love hopes to offer an opportunity for participants to express themselves, share their lived experiences, and create a sense of community.
Part 1: Wednesday, February 17, 5:30 - 7:30 pm
Part 2: Wednesday, March 3, 5:30 - 7:30 pm
This program will be limited to 10 participants, in order to create a sense of intimacy and a safe space for learning conversations to occur.
It is suggested that participants attend both the first session and the follow up reflection/conversation, if possible. This event will not be recorded.
Anthony Gebrehiwot is a passionate photographer and community leader, whose creative lens re-visions photography as an ongoing dialogue of social change between subject and society. Gebrehiwot seeks to communicate without language in an intimate and vulnerable way. Through photography, he portrays the vocabulary of race, masculinity, history, perception, and vulnerability.
