February/March Events

In the midst of an already eventful start to 2020, we wanted to draw your attention to a few things upcoming.

This week, on February 13, TRU member Aljumaine Gayle will be participating in a panel at InterAccess with Hiba Ali, Sarah Friend, and Jason Li. The panel is part of InterAccess’ Ctrl+Shift series, and will focus on “how artists are questioning, circumventing, and intervening in tools of online surveillance.” The discussion starts at 7pm; click here for more details.

The TRU will be hosting its final Technoscience Salon in the Consent and its Discontents series this Friday, February 14, with guests Dr. Jeffrey Ansloos, Dr. Uahikea Maile, and Marie Laing. The McLuhan Centre is co-presenting and Kristen Bos will be moderating. The salon runs from 4-6pm with a reception to follow at Harbord House. See below or visit the website for more details.

There are multiple upcoming showings of The Chemical Valley Project in Toronto and throughout Ontario. The Chemical Valley Project is a collaboration between Broadleaf Theatre and Vanessa and Beze Gray, which documents their stories as land defenders and water protectors. For folks in Hamilton, The Chemical Valley Project will be at McMaster University February 12 and 13. In March, you can see it in Toronto at University of Toronto’s Robert Gill Theatre, or in Peterborough at the Market Hall Performing Arts Centre. Stay tuned to the project website for dates and showtimes.

You can also check out Vanessa Gray’s artwork at the Thames Art Gallery in their current group exhibition, Legends Are The Rivers That Take Us Home through March 15.
