New Monuments for New Cities Public Art Tour with Ellie Joseph and Daniel Rotsztain – August 20

August 20 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

An ongoing series of onsite tours exploring selected works in the public art exhibition, New Monuments for New Cities

August 20 – Ellie Joseph and Daniel Rotsztain

RSVP >>

Each tour will be led by a different Torontonian – artists, designers, planners, community members and active urbanists – who will reflect on the artworks, The Bentway’s layered histories and potential futures, as well as the city itself. The tour leaders will lead participants throughout The Bentway and interpret the site and works based on their own expertise and interests.

The August 20th tour will be conducted by Ellie Joseph and Daniel Rotsztain. Ellie Joseph, organizer of the Two Row on the Grand event in Six Nations, in conversation with Daniel Rotsztain, The Urban Geographer, will lead a site walk discussing the principles of the Two Row wampum belt, and how they intersect with the Bentway’s histories, designs, and approaches to city building.

About the Exhibition
New Monuments for New Cities is a joint art exhibition with five members of the High Line Network—a group of 19 North American infrastructure/industrial reuse projects. This ambitious touring public art exhibition showcases provocative works from 25 acclaimed artists from Toronto, Houston, Austin, Chicago, and New York that explore new monuments for today’s changing social and political landscape.
