Public meet & greet and info session with taisha paggett and Seika Boye
Thursday, November 8th, 7:00—9:00pm
In the fall of 2019, the SMTP exhibition will turn Gallery TPW into an environment reminiscent of a dance school with a series of guiding visual and material gestures and an experimental, free-to-the-public curriculum of movement-based classes, workshops, and events facilitated by a selected core group of Toronto participants across the show’s eight-week run. The exhibition’s experimental curriculum will address a guiding conceptual question: “What is a Black. Dance. Curriculum. Today?” (Here “Black dance” is a play on words meant not just to point to the canon of African diasporic dance but to the perpetually unstable condition and resiliency of Black life in the United States and Canada.)
This session is open to all. We encourage both interested members of the public and those who have applied to join the SMTP Toronto collective to attend.
