Description

New Monuments for New Cities:
Public Art Tour with Susan Blight and Guest

August 6, 6:30-7:30pm
Free


An ongoing series of onsite tours exploring selected works in the public art exhibition, New Monuments for New Cities.

Tours will be held Tuesdays (6:30-7:30pm) from May 14 to August 20. Each tour will be led by a different Torontonian – artists, designers, planners, community members and active urbanists – who will reflect on the artworks, The Bentway’s layered histories and potential futures, as well as the city itself. The tour leaders will lead participants throughout The Bentway and interpret the site and works based on their own expertise and interests.

The August 6 tour will be led by Susan Blight and a guest. Blight is an interdisciplinary artist and filmmaker from Couchiching First Nation, Anishinaabe, Turtle Clan whose work has been screened and exhibited nationally and internationally. Susan is co-founder of The Ogimaa Miikana Project, an artist/activist collective working to reclaim and rename the roads, streets, and landmarks of Toronto with Anishinaabemowin (Ojibwe language).
