About this event

Please note: Additional time slots are being added weekly.

---------------------------------------

Before rehabilitation work begins on the historic Corleck Building, Canada Ireland Foundation invited a group of diverse artists to transform the unique property with a series of murals and installations inspired by the miotas (the Gaelic word for myth) and the foundational myths from their own cultures.

Explore the original artwork, view the building's vintage features, and learn about future plans for the heritage property. (Free)

Scheduled time-slots are available until at least August 15, 2021, for groups of up to 6 people. Tours are self-paced but typically 30 to 45 minutes.

FEATURED ARTISTS:

Caitlin Taguibao; Doras; The Dreamers; Kirsten McCrae + JP King; Kizmet; and Kreecha.

Thank you to our supporters. This exhibition is generously supported by the Waterfront BIA, #ShowLoveTO, and the Robert G. Kearns Foundation.

Covid-19 health protocols: All visitors are required to wear a facemask while touring indoors. Those without an online reservation will be asked to sign-in.

Accessibility: the largest mural in the series, by Doras, is on the ground-level and fully accessible. Other artwork, however, is only accessible via a set of stairs.

Content Warning: Some artwork contains nude figures and sexually suggestive imagery. While there is no age restriction, parental discretion is advised.
