Infinity Of Intimate Space Curator's Tour says
InterAccess is pleased to host an exhibition tour with IA Current Curator Aliya Karmali.

Please join us on Saturday November 19th as Curator Aliya Karmali and exhibiting artists disucss the relationship between memory, imagination, dreams, and space. Whether physical or digital, how do the spaces we occupy become meaningful and intimate? What reveries do we explore in the spaces we immerse ourselves in?

'Infinity of Intimate Space' is InterAccess's 15th annual emerging artists exhibition. In celebration of this milestone year, the program has been renamed to 'Current', reflecting the present voices of emerging curators and artists. "Current" refers to the now, of course, but it is also an energetic charge that causes light, heat, and all sorts of electronic life; an apt metaphor for emergent creative practices within the ever-expanding field of new media.

'Infinity of Intimate Space' featurs works by artists Jennifer Akkermans, Ilze Briede (Kavi), Connor Buck, and Venessa Heddle, and is curated by Current Emerging Curator Aliya Karmali.

Aliya Karmali is a recent U of T graduate. Interested in how our spaces create and hold meaning, Karmali developed a call for submissions centred on the poetics of space. The resulting exhibition, Infinity of Intimate Space, features four emerging artists whose works explore space through memories and dreams. The exhibition is inspired by Gaston Bachelard’s book, The Poetics of Space, which discusses the phenomenologist's study of the sites of our intimate lives.
