Artscape Youngplace, 180 Shaw Street
With Shelley Hornstein, Daniel Rotsztain, Maggie Hutcheson, host Nick Hutcheson, and musical guest Rebecca Campbell
In conjunction with the Ontario Jewish Archives’ current exhibition Benjamin Brown: Architect (at Urbanspace Gallery until April 23, 2016), Shelley Hornstein (professor, Architectural History & Visual Culture at York University), Daniel Rotsztain (urban geographer/artist) and Maggie Hutcheson (community-engaged artist, educator and consultant) will share their insights on the intersections of memory, urban sites and architecture in Toronto.
We’ll also screen an 8-minute documentary, exploring contemporary perspectives on Benjamin Brown’s buildings, and how they stand as testaments to the past, while re-purposed for today.
With special live music from singer/songwriter Rebecca Campbell.
