The fall edition of Unsettling, which features work by Basil AlZeri, Lori Blondeau, Duorama (Paul Couillard & Ed Johnson), Terrance Houle and Lisa Myers, runs from September 5 - October 21, with the official reception September 13.
The exhibition Unsettling seeks to unsettle its site—the Doris McCarthy Gallery, the campus of U of T Scarborough, and the suburb of Scarborough itself. It probes themes ranging from the indigenous history of Scarborough to the proliferation of modernism, from immigration to urban sprawl, the underlying tensions between ecology and human intervention and the contradictions in the celebration of Canada's 150th anniversary.
Further education and outreach programming is scheduled throughout the run of the show. More details are on the Doris McCarthy Gallery website.
