ArtworxTO: Toronto's Year of Public Art 2021–2022 will celebrate Toronto’s exceptional public art collection and the artists behind it. This exciting new initiative will support artists and new artwork that reflects Toronto's diversity and creates more opportunities for the public to engage with art in their everyday lives, across the whole city.
The arts sector is an essential component of a vibrant community and will play a key role in the city's economic recovery from the pandemic. Working closely with artists and Toronto’s arts institutions ArtworxTO will deliver major public art projects and commissions from fall 2021 to fall 2022. This September, discover creativity and community–everywhere.
The Collision Gallery will serve as one of the ArtworxTO Pop-up Hubs to explore and celebrate Indigenous care as a radical act with a curated exhibition by Emma Steen. Emma Steen is a freelance curator, writer, and the Outreach and Membership Coordinator for the Indigenous Curatorial Collective. Her area of interest lies in art that explores bodies, sex and love with anti-colonial intention. Her background also includes extensive work in community arts organizing as well as supporting methods of institutional accountability.
