Deaf, what?
Sage Willow with Alice Lo

Opening Reception: January 18, 6-8pm
Exhibition Dates: January 18 - February 17, 2018

About the Exhibition
Deaf, what? is an exciting multimedia exhibit developed by Toronto-based artist Sage Willow in collaboration with photographer Alice Lo that highlights the experiences and contributions of activists, change makers and everyday people who identify within the Deaf spectrum - as having some degree of deafness. Filling Tangled Art Gallery with 50 portraits of individuals from across the country and interviews documenting their travels, these artists want to draw attention to the multitude of Deaf folk whose legacies continue to be ignored.

“The history of Canada’s treatment towards Deaf people includes acts of audism spanning more than a couple of centuries. It’s time for more visibility, awareness, and recognition. We are inviting you to explore our lives through our intersectional experiences in “Deaf, what?” - Sage Willow

As part of this project’s development, award-winning Canadian photographer Zun Lee will be serving as advisor.
