New Monuments for New Cities Public Art Tour with Michèle Pearson Clarke – June 25

June 25 @ 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

June 25 – Michèle Pearson Clarke
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 June 25 tour will be led by Michèle Pearson Clarke. Clarke is a Trinidad-born artist who works in photography, film, video and installation. Using archival, performative and process-oriented strategies, her work explores the personal and political possibilities afforded by considering experiences of emotions related to longing and loss. She was recently appointed to serve a three-year term as the Photo Laureate for the City of Toronto.
