Memories of the Future


August 30, 2014
by Canadian Architect

Curated by Noa Bronstein and Katherine Dennis, Memories of the Future is an annual project that invites contemporary artists to respond to the history and development of house museums across Toronto. For the inaugural exhibition at Gibson House Museum artists Sara Angelucci, Robert Hengeveld, Eleanor King and Matt Macintosh employ a range of approaches and media that explore the layered narratives of the house, museum and landscape.

Uncovering hidden stories and forgotten histories, the exhibition explores timely issues related to museums and authenticity, land claims, sustainability and urban development. Offering a kind of cultural excavation, this ongoing curatorial project digs deeper into the archive and provides alternate readings of historic narratives. Using the visual language of the present and speculating on possibilities for the future, memories of the past are newly exposed, interpreted and remembered.

The opening reception takes place on Saturday, September 21, 2014 2:00-5:00pm, preceded by a walk-through with the artists at 1:00pm. The exhibition runs from September 20-November 9, 2014.

Gibson House Museum is located at 5172 Yonge Street in North York, Ontario. Museum hours are Wednesday to Sunday from 1:00pm to 5:00pm and Thursday from 1:00pm to 8:00pm.
