Symposium:
What do we mean when we say ‘content moderation’?
Digital Censorship, Surveillance, and Creative Workers

Saturday, May 25 and Sunday, May 26, 2019

Registration is required for both days. Click here to purchase your ticket!

May 25
$20 general admission
$15 students / under-waged admission

May 26
Free admission

This interdisciplinary symposium addresses urgent concerns regarding control of digital space within and beyond the art and creative communities in Canadian and international contexts. It explores how artists and creators can contribute to a more ethical web. The symposium will explore three approaches as examples of artist- and tech-involved activism against two main and interconnected systems of oppression: artists as developers/co-developers of the Web’s Infrastructure; artistic “gestures” as activism against online censorship and surveillance; and storytelling—changing narratives through technology and science fiction.

This event is organized by Pegah Vaezi as part of the requirements for the MVS degree in Curatorial Studies at the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design, University of Toronto. Project support provided by TD Insurance.

Curated by Kate Whiteway

University of Toronto Art Centre

In & Out of Saskatchewan is an exhibition about Saskatchewan in Toronto, exploring artists’ works to illuminate the conditions by which art from ‘peripheral’ places is legitimized by travelling to and from ‘centres.’ The works offer alternate views on traditions associated with the Prairies, namely colour field abstraction, landscape painting and photography, weaving and ceramics.

Carrie Mae Weems: Heave

Until – July 27, 2019

Organized by the Art Museum at the University of Toronto and co-presented with Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival

Justina M. Barnicke Gallery

Throughout her artistic trajectory, noted American artist Carrie Mae Weems has undertaken sustained investigations of social conflict. The multi-part installation Heave combines photography, video, news media sampling, as well as ephemera to probe the devastating effects of violence in our life and time. The complex installation explores the spectacle of violence in our contemporary lives relocating this present within sustained histories of conflict and uprising.

Weems’ exhibition in five parts, sited at distinct locations across Toronto, represents the artist’s first solo exhibition in Canada. Her work will be presented in two gallery exhibitions, including a new iteration of her recent project, Heave (2018), at the Art Museum. The CONTACT Gallery will display a series of Weems’ photographic works, and present three major public art installations downtown, including on the exterior of the TIFF Bell Lightbox, the headquarters of the Toronto International Film Festival. More information.

Supported by Liza Mauer and Andrew Sheiner, Cindy and Shon Barnett, anonymous donor, and The Stonefields Foundation.
