Ritual of Remembering - Sunset Service Toronto

"A remembrance ritual that interrupts objects, space and sound to integrate an idealized world with the lived world & the divine with man. An installation paying reverence to all things sacred, and the sacred in all things

Ritual of Remembering brings together a diverse collective of artists and curators to produce a multisensory spiritual-arts experience."

Exhibit B 'human zoo' sparks art and censorship controversy

According to the artist, "Exhibit B" is meant as a nod to the so-called "Human Zoos" which are an actual artifact of colonial history. But in the present day, "Exhibit B" has drawn a huge amount of protest. When a London institution, the Barbican, planned to show it last year, it ended up canceling because of protests.

The Canadian arts festival, Luminato, in Toronto, considered bringing "Exhibit B" to Canada... but decided against it. Instead it will convene a meeting later this week to discuss "Exhibit B" and the issues it raises.
