Curator-led in-person tour of the exhibition

These Streets Remember: Prairie Métis History in Toronto
A virtual lecture by Dr. Sherry Farrell Racette
Date to be determined

When the talk is rescheduled, we will post a new link for registrations.

Due to unforeseen circumstances These Streets Remember is postponed to a TBD date, to take place during the run of the exhibition Lii Zoot Tayr. For those already registered for the original in-person lecture, please join us at AGYU at 2pm for an in-person curator-led tour of the exhibition. All artists will be in attendance.

Lii Zoot Tayr is exploring the seen and unseen in an effort to share those stories that frequently remain obscured from view. To this end, Dr. Sherry Farrell Racette will speak on the connections between and across various colonial sites in Toronto and their relationships with Indigenous histories in what is now known as western Canada.

Dr. Farrell Racette will focus on important events that helped shape the Métis Nation in the Prairies, including the Trial of the Seven Oaks Battle, the resistance at Batoche, and the Queen’s Park monuments to Canadian soldiers who fought at Batoche. It is through acknowledging our shared colonial histories across these sites that we are able to think through possibilities for breaking through to other worlds.
