Migrating the Margins also received a 2017 Project Support Award from the Toronto Friends of the Visual Arts.
Taking a Glissantian point of view on Toronto’s creole conditions as an organized manifestation of diversity, this book sketches out some of the developing characteristics of an aesthetics of amalgamation that have newly evolved in suburban conditions of peripheral circulation and diversifying totality. The suburbs and suburban artists are forever fated to be entangled in difference, where rooted identities are a thing of the past.
This book is a companion to our fall 2017 exhibition, Migrating the Margins, which included work by Erika DeFreitas, Anique Jordan, Tau Lewis, Rajni Perera, and Nep Sidhu and public art projects by Farrah-Marie Miranda, Otherness (Pamila Matharu and Marilyn Fernandes), and Sister Co-Resister.
