Artists’ Tour with BAMBITCHELL

About the exhibition:

Memories of the Future is an annual project that invites artists to respond to the history and development of house museums across Toronto. For this exhibition at the Campbell House Museum, artists Aleesa Cohene and Bambitchell employ a range of approaches that uncover and interpret the layered narratives of the house. The artworks consider the location of the house in Toronto’s justice precinct and Chief Justice William Campbell’s role in presiding over the ‘Types Trial’, the case against the rioters who destroyed William Lyon Mackenzie’s printing press, by unpacking contemporary issues related to citizenship, social justice, and governmental control.

Offering a kind of cultural excavation, this ongoing curatorial project digs deeper into the archive and provides alternate readings of historic accounts. Using the visual language of the present and speculating on possibilities for the future, memories of the distant past are newly exposed, interpreted and remembered.

Curated by Noa Bronstein and Katherine Dennis.
