“Please join us for the Open Studio event of Intergenerational LGBT Artist Residency 2019.

The 2019 jurors were Kathleen PIRRIE ADAMS, Sheri OSDEN NAULT, Sean LEE and Syrus Marcus WARE. The artists of Intergenerational LGBT Artist Residency 2019 are:

Valentin BROWN
Anna CAMILLERI
Rah ELEH
James FOWLER
Michele PEARSON CLARKE

The Intergenerational LGBT Artist Residency is a combined curatorial, relational/live art, and sociopolitical praxis. The residency prioritizes decolonial engagement with LGBTQ2+ art and political histories in Canada.

The multiple curations, projects and residency in 2019 see the triumphant continuation of the Intergenerational LGBT Artist Residency into its sixth year, with the support of the Ontario Arts Council - Conseil des arts de l'Ontario, Canada Council for the Arts | Conseil des Arts du Canada and private donors.

The artists studios will be open from noon until 8pm. You are of course welcome to linger at AGP’s private beach, or visit Hanlan’s Point, and the many other enjoyments the Toronto Islands have to offer.

***Accessibility info: Artscape Gibraltar Point is physically accessible, including several ramps into the building, as well as washrooms (some, not all). Van rides are being offered especially to those who might not be able to handle the 20 minute walking distance from the Hanlan's Point dock to AGP. Please let us know your access needs.
