Sorry Exhibit says
Starting with Sorry
Tuesday September 27th, 7-9p.m.
An Interactive Art Exhibit
Hosted at Hashtag Gallery, 830 Dundas Street West, Toronto, ON.
Admission is free.

I'm sorry I get mad at you when you’re sick.
I’m sorry I stole your naked pictures off your phone.
I’m sorry I didn’t pick you.
I’m sorry I broke into your house
I’m sorry for saying sorry about the things that don’t matter and not about the things that do.

Starting with Sorry is a Canadian Art Exhibit curated by Riva Di Paola.
It is composed of personal apologies, along with hundreds of anonymous apologies received through this anonymous online form (add to the #wallofapologies now!)-

A Canadian born and bred, after living in the United States for years (and becoming an American Citizen) Riva missed being sorry.

“Yes, it’s true, we apologize for everything. I’m sorry even when I have no idea why. I’m sorry when I didn’t hear what you said, “Sorry?” I’m sorry when I’m coming out and you’re coming in, “Oops, sorry!”, I’m even sorry when I’m asking my server for another drink, “Sorry, can I grab another one?”.
It’s in my blood to be sorry. When I fly in and land on Canadian soil I’m always immediately thankful to be ‘sorry’ again. And not ‘Saree’, like some Americans say it (I am not referring to a woman’s garb!) I am SORRY!!!
I’m sorry I shouted at you. And I’m sorry to my U.S. friends, I just miss being sorry.
Anyway, it only felt right to start with a grand apology.”
