This exhibition looks to the utopian imagination of the back-to-the-land movement, considering both its ambitions and its failures to see what we might recuperate from this history, almost forty years later.

Newfoundland artist Pam Hall’s creative and social engagement with community is a long-standing and significant part of her artistic practice. She invites members of the non-art community to be creative collaborators – among these, a medical school, a fish processing plant and a small rural parish hall. The house – with all of its physical, emotional, cultural, social and gendered connotations – is the broad theme of this exhibition. The works displayed and those performed create the union of Hall’s solitary and collaborative practices with the active reception of the gallery audience.

For almost fifty years, TD Bank Group has been collecting Canadian art. In the mid-1960s, the bank began collecting contemporary artwork for spaces in the new Mies van der Rohe-designed Toronto Dominion Centre in Toronto. Around the same time, TD initiated a remarkable collection of Inuit art in honour of Canada’s Centennial in 1967. Inuit Ullumi: Inuit Today highlights how these two distinct collections have begun to coalesce, creating a unique dialogue about place, identity, diversity, and history.
