CATALOGUE LAUNCH | GIFTS+OCCUPATIONS COLLECTIVE
Saturday, September 17th, 2016 2:00pm to 4:00pm
The Gifts+Occupations Collective would like to invite you to the launch of their catalogue buildbuild better, which documents their project at the Historic Zion Schoolhouse in 2015.
A conversation/panel moderated by Shannon Gerrard with the members of the Gifts + Occupations Collective, will take place at 2pm.
build… build better was an exhibition of site-sensitive installations by the Gifts & Occupations Collective. Transforming Historic Zion Schoolhouse, the project took up the legacy of Friedrich Froebel’s kinesthetic pedagogy and its influence on the development of aesthetic modernism. Exploring issues of experimentation and the necessity of failure in learning, build… build better used the modularity of children’s toys to revisit the significance of repetition in modern and contemporary practice.
Gifts + Occupations Collective acknowledges the support of the Toronto Arts Council through their Artists Animating Historic Sites and Museums programme, in collaboration with City of Toronto Historic Sites
