Bonafide

  • United Contemporary 1444 Dupont Street, Unit 22 Toronto, ON, M6P 4H3 Canada (map)

An exhibition featuring young multi-cultural artists from across Toronto. Curated by Spencer Julien and Temple Marucci-Campbell. 

Featuring work by Shellicka Anglin, Noah Brown, Isabella Ferrer Fernandez, Hailey Hanson, Luca Soldovieri, Teodore von Baeyer, and Alexis Vo. 

This exhibition is grounded in concepts of individual identity and its intersection with one’s heritage and culture. Bonafide highlights personal engagements with the exploration of culture and the ways in which it influences the idea of “self”. Relationships between the work pose questions about the constructs of identity in the context of cultural history. Traditional cultural elements are used as variables in the realization of more personal and nuanced ethnographies. 

Many of these artists have gained personal independence through engaging with their cultural identity — thoroughly understanding their own personal histories and using it to inform the stories they tell. 

Presented with support of the Department of Canadian Heritage, Government of Canada.
